David Palmer and Roger Booth represented ECC at the Thames Valley GC Doubles at Abingdon. 6 pairs battled it out over 5 games each, with both the winners and runners up coming from Phylis Court CC.
The Eynsham pair finished by winning 1 and loosing 4 games, 7-6 6-7 6-7 3-7 4-7, taking consolation that they took the winners and runners up to the 13th! and loosing the other 2 games to very experienced opponents. The courts were dry, brick hard and running very fast - hence the competition was renamed "The Desert Classic"
