It was a case of the gents letting the ladies down when Caversham took on Littleton in the Advantage League yesterday.
While Pam Briggs and Anne Small both won three of their four matches, David Dibben managed only two wins and Tim Small came home empty-handed.

Tim’s defeats mean he is now up a handicap of seven — useful ahead of the return trip to finish the aborted match at Phyllis Court on July 31st.
He might have had more success at soggy Winchester if he had grown webbed feet. The rain was hosing it down all day for a fixture played at their neighbours’ club because Littleton’s courts are unplayable.
Rooks have now been officially blamed for the damaged lawns. Previously badgers were thought to be the culprits, and they’ve been getting a bad Press lately.
