Another win for North Oxford but by tightest of margins.

14 May 2019, by Chrissie Martin

North Oxford followed on from their opening match win with another victory v Wimborne Minster in the National League Team Tennis, SW Division but only just!
After the opening 4 singles and 2 doubles the match was tied at 3 rubbers all (6-6). After 2 singles shoot outs, it was still in deadlock at one a piece – Joe saving the day with an amazing comeback from 2-7 down to win 10-8 then Ben and Jack held nerve to win the deciding doubles shoot out 10-6 to clinch the tie for NO.
This result puts NO at the top of their division after 2 matches with 4 to play.
