2018 Men’s Blues Varsity Match

30th June 2018

The 2018 Lawn Tennis Varsity Match was held at Moor Park Golf and Tennis Club over the weekend of June 30th and July 1st. The 8-strong Cambridge side headed into this year’s fixture with considerable confidence. The team had enjoyed excellent results throughout the year – not least comprehensive victories over their Oxford counterparts en route to victory in the BUCS Midlands 1A league – and, furthermore, much of the squad had been heavily involved in Cambridge’s comprehensive 2017 Varsity victory a year previously; the Light Blues were certainly optimistic, therefore, at the prospect of banishing memories of Varsity defeats at Moor Park in 2015 and 2016 and bringing home the Doherty Cup for a second year running.

Grasshoppers vs Oxford Blues

9th February 2018

The Cambridge 2nd team came to a difficult fixture against Oxford 1s full of determination. The match was played at Letchworth tennis club and kicked off at midday with Nikhil playing singles at number 1, Henry number 2 and Charlie and Domenic playing doubles. The Oxford number 1 and 2 were exceptionally strong players and despite playing some good tennis, both Nikhil and Henry went down in straight sets, 6-1 6-1 and 6-2 6-1. Domenic and Charlie mounted an excellent comeback after losing the first set. They eventually lost a very close match in the match tiebreak, 1-6 6-2 4-10. In typical Cambridge fashion, Nikhil had to rush off for a supervision and was replaced by Tibo, who partnered Henry for the doubles. Unfortunately this did not change things much, and Henry and Tibo lost their doubles 6-1, 6-0, with their opponents playing some filthy tennis. Charlie was up against a very consistent player in the singles and had a... read more

Ladybirds vs Birmingham 1sts

7th February 2018

The W2 match against Birmingham 1sts took place in a fancy location – the Edgbaston club which hosts a WTA tournament – however it would have felt much more luxurious were we not playing outdoors in 3 degrees C. Despite the impending frostbite we got ready for the first round of doubles, Yas and Magda as no. 1 and Anna and Elena at 2. Yas and Magda, slow to warm up lost the first set but showed their true colours in the second, with consistent cross-court rallies and aggressive volley intercept, however in the match tie break it wasn’t quite enough against our reenergized opponents, leading to final match score of 2-6 6-2 3-10. Meanwhile Anna and Elena’s match proved equally competitive. With a lot of powerful rallies and some big serves it went to the third set which unfortunately went down a bit too quickly for the Birmingham team, 6-3 4-6 1-10. The first round of singles featured Yas... read more
