Match Report

The Women’s Blues travelled up to Durham to play in the quarterfinals of the BUCS Cup. Durham boasts a strong side, having several international players on their roster and high-performance coaching.
Kondratowicz and Coombs were playing two top level opponents and only managed to get one game on the scoreboard between them: a double bagel loss for Kondratowicz and 1-6, 0-6 for Coombs, playing Jessica Ren who has represented the UK. McFarlane had a closer match than the score suggests, playing some strong tennis with long rallies, but ultimately going down 2-6, 0-6.
The doubles was again a one-sided affair, with Coombs and Kondratowicz losing 0-6, 2-6. A disappointing but unsurprising result against the current titleholders in the last match of the season. Preparations for Varsity in Easter term are now the focus of the team.
