Match Result: IC of GB 8 – 3 Cambridge University
Date: Saturday 11th June 2016
Venue: Fenners, Cambridge
Captained by Rob Blythe, the IC of GB beat Cambridge 8-3 in a competitive and well fought match with 6 of the 11 matches going to three sets.
A couple of special mentions: to Bruno for making the trip over from Slovenia especially for the match and to Cameron who was able to step in and make sure that we had a full team after two last minute injuries. Andrew Page had to leave after the singles so I'd also like to thank the Cambridge team who were able to give us one of their players for the first round of doubles.
Overall it was a great fixture on the grass at Fenners. Our thanks, as always, to Cambridge for hosting a great match - we're looking forward to next year already!
