We had two friendlies over the weekend of 30th April – 1st May.
On Saturday, we travelled to the Pippbrook club in Dorking. Our team were four players short, so Pippbrook kindly let four of their players join us for the afternoon. It was a pleasant afternoon, spoilt only by a brief rain shower during ends eight and nine. However, the sun soon returned and Merrow went on to record a seven shot win.
Sunday’s match was against Albury. A warm sunny day was in prospect; quite a change from the recent cold and wet days. There were mixed fortunes, with both wins and losses across the four rinks, but the end result was a well deserved draw.
