Surbiton wins the Hellenic Teams Championship
Surbiton's team of four, captained by Mary Knapp, won the Hellenic Teams Championship held in Corfu. It was a close battle with Parkstone, against whom our team achieved a draw in the first round. With both continuing to beat the other teams it looked like a draw on matches, needing a count-back of individual games to decide a tie-break. However, Parkstone fell apart on the last morning and could only just get a draw against Nipchester, leaving Surbiton clear by half a match.
With temperatures of 25-27C each day we needed a lot of beer and wine to keep going. It was only the training for this at home which gave us the edge.
