Last Friday’s warm and clear spring evening was a perfect setting for coaches James McIntosh and Simon James to take on the younger duo of Ben Jubin and Jamie Jordan in the Coaches Exhibition Match. The well publicised event attracted a crowd of sixty-five people and fellow coach Ben Clarke was on official duty in the umpire chair. Jubin and Jordan were victorious in the close match, winning the first set in the 7 point tie break 7-6 and then winning the second set 7-5 resulting in overall victory and bragging rights.

Jubin said, “Jamie and I would like to thank our fans, it was great to prove everyone wrong who didn’t have faith in us. It doesn’t matter how much you train when you have talent like ours. It was a great night.”
Winning pair Jubin and Jordan were in fine form
James added “Playing in the match was good fun, and I think all the coaches enjoyed themselves. I hope that the match was enjoyable to watch and based on some of the feedback after, I definitely think we will do this again next year. The two sides were very even and anyone could have won on the day, however this time round Jamie and Ben won which was well deserved.”
