The Caversham B pairing of Tim Small and David Dibben defied monsoon conditions to whitewash Basingstoke Cavaliers 5-0 in the GC One Court Clubs’ League today.

Standing water on the lawn couldn’t stop our men thrashing the Cavaliers’ team of Mike Flanagan and Rachel Hill to stretch their lead at the top of the table.

We started with a 7-1 victory in the doubles and what followed in the singles became the most one-sided battle in the town since the civil war in 1645.

Tim and David’s League campaign continues when we entertain Basingstoke Roundheads at Albert Road on May 26th.
