Match Report

women’s blues vs bristol 1st

Today was the first BUCS match of the season and Cambridge first team were playing at their new “home” venue of Peterborough….an hour and a half away. Kadi and Monika kicked off the doubles and came up against a well-practised pair and lost after two hours of play: 2-6 4-6. Georgina and Anna, who normally play for the 2nd team, were by no means outclassed and lost 4-6 3-6. All four players seemed rusty and out of match practice, lacking the Bristol team’s four weeks of training. Anna lost 1-6 2-6, Georgina 3-6 2-6 (she had heroically also done rowing in the morning), Monika 6-7 4-6 (a two-hour match), and Kadi 6-2 4-6 11-13 (her legs stopped working after the first set).
Despite this loss, Cambridge players are confident that with intense training and new enthusiasm they will get the results they deserve.
