Victory over Reigate Priory

On the 17th July, we welcomed Reigate Priory to our lawns for an SECF GC Restricted League match. The prescribed format requires teams of four whose individual handicap is a minimum of 2 and aggregate team handicap a minimum of 16.

Reigate’s team consisted of players with handicaps of 2, 2, 7 and 14. Our team was Peter Adams, Andrew Lockwood, Jan Honeysett and Vernon Salt with handicaps on the day of 4, 4, 5 and 6.

In the morning, the two lowest handicap players from each team play doubles against each other. The higher handicap players play singles. All matches are best of three 13 point games. At lunchtime, GGCC were ahead 2-1 thanks to winning the doubles and one of the singles.

With all still to play for, the afternoon session of four singles matches yielded three more victories for GGCC giving a final result of 5-2 in our favour. Well done team!
