On: Saturday, 01 Feb 2020
Venue: Away

Two Sherborne players enjoyed three singles matches in steady weather at Saturday afternoon's tournament at Wincanton. First round matches proved to be a tough test for both Ashley Horton and Josh Campbell, who were playing their first matches of the term. After straight set first round losses, both boys keenly identified an area to be more productive. Ashley started brightly in his first consolation match taking the first set 4-0, to then be taken to a third following his opponent Louis Tutcher taking a high energy tie break 11-9. But the Sherborne player positively took the final set tie break 10-4. Josh was edged out by Mark Preston in his opening consolation in a first set tie break, with the final score 3-4 1-4. The Sherborne duo then played a reverse of the previous opponents, with Josh this time beating Tutcher 4-3 4-0. Ashley was similarly pipped by Preston in a tie break first set in a final consolation match defeat. The Sherborne players had plenty to take away from their competitive afternoon at Wincanton.
