1st Dec 2016 : Friendly at Sheen
> In a close fought match Barnes turned out eventual 3-2 winners against Sheen on 1 December. Gerry at 4 and John A at 3 were first up. Despite quickly going down 2-0, Gerry put on a spirited fight in the third game before succumbing to a series of pinpoint serves which saw him lose out. John A raced into a 2-0 lead but the remnants of a bug he had picked up when travelling in India the previous week soon got the better of him and he faded away as his dynamo of an opponent swept through the next three games to win 3-2. It was then up to David and Kevin at 1 and 2 respectively to restore parity which they duly did. David's opponent never got the hang of those wristy, slicey boasts and David ran out a comfortable winner 3-0. Despite losing the first game Kevin was calm and measured playing his natural, fluent strokes that had his opponent running all over the court and he finished strongly winning the next three games to take it 3-1. It came down to Andrew, playing at 5, to bring home the match which he did in style despite the power hitting of his opponent which saw Andrew having to dodge and duck on several occasions as the ball rocketed off the front wall. A confident 3-0 win for Andrew thus securing the victory. The match over, we then retired to the clubhouse for some sumptuous steak and mushroom pie, all washed down with a few pints of Pride and a couple of bottles of Rioja. Well done to the team for a great performance.
