TT1011, Week 11

Big game tonight: could well have been shown on Sky Sports 37, or maybe Eurosport. Defiants, clinging on to 2nd position, versus the unflappable Britannia Sparrows, relegated last season like our sorry selves. Conditions are terrible, snow and slush everywhere. Thankfully we're playing inside.

No team points for PC Andy tonight, and could well have crumbled completely after a torrid opening against top-of-the-averages Colin. Recovered to land an end against Mr Sparrow and play a couple of corking backhands against Bill. He'll have easier nights.

Two trouble-free wins for Ed bookended the showdown with Colin. Two games all, into the fifth, nothing between them before Colin pulls away. Don't mind losing a game like that.

Leaving Andy, fresh from London, to get full value with three five-enders. Beat John, just beat Bill, then a super-tight encounter with Colin, edged out 11-9 in the decider.

Up to Ed and Andy to bag the doubles for the draw: two matchpoints down, saved them both, and won the game. Five to them, five to us: good game.
