REGIONAL TEAM RESULTS
A tough afternoon for the Men’s NCL regional team on the 16th, playing a Halton team only relegated from the National league on a technicality last year.
After the first round of singles North Oxford found themselves 3-1 down, Richard picking up the only win. Despite some excellent rallies in the doubles, Halton came out on top in both matches to secure the 5-1 victory.
