Ellenborough B Win Cheshunt Divisional Cup

Having been runners-up for several seasons, Ellenborough B were secretly expecting the same result yet again when they Played Cheshunt in the final of the Division 2 Cup at Ellenborough on the 5th April.

This was hardly surprising given that Cheshunt had beaten them 6-3 in the very first group stage match of the competition, with Ellenborough winning all 3 doubles but none of the singles.  Both teams, however, had won their subsequent matches to set up a repeat showdown in the final.  Cheshunt had also won the division in the league this season by a substantial margin.

However, things went rather differently this time.  The Ellenborough team of Peter Bayman, Joan Bayman and Gill Toumbas got off to the good start expected, with Joan and Gill winning the opening doubles against Colin Bullworthy and Terry Smith.  Peter then went on to play Steve Cross, who has given him some problems since changing to ‘funny’ rubbers.  This time, though, Peter won comfortably in straight games.  Joan then lost very narrowly to Colin in the fifth after having three deuce games in their match.  This made it 2-1 to Ellenborough.  Gill then played well to beat Terry in straight games and Peter and Joan won their doubles to make it 4-1 to Ellenborough.  Peter rounded things off by beating Colin to take the overall match and the Divisional Cup for Ellenborough by 5 sets to 1.  The three remaining ‘dead’ sets were played, with the final result standing at 6-3 to Ellenborough B.

In addition to the three who played in the final, Rosetta Delisle and Charlie Izatt had also represented the team in earlier rounds.

It is worth noting that Ellenborough B was the only team not to lose any of their doubles matches during this year’s competition.  This must mean that all those doubles games played in the over 50s practice sessions at Ellenborough have come in useful!
