Men's Over 35's County Cup Report
• 3 MINUTE READ
This year the 35's County Cup event at Eastbourne attracted a strong entry, with counties fielding strong squads across all groups.
Adding to the challenge, an unfortunate mix up with dates meant at late notice three players were unable to attend.
With the prospect of the unthinkable, withdrawing from the event, we were grateful and fortunate that at the last minute we were able to field a team. Russell Blenkinsop and Janak Gunatilleke answering the call, made their debuts for Nottinghamshire in the age group, to join stalwarts Justin and Jason Revill.
Rain on the practice day made the challenge even tougher, having to play matches with no warmup on the Eastbourne grass.
Despite this, the team competed admirably, winning a rubber against each county in the group. With an extra player (no substitute meant the physio room always had a Nottinghamshire player laying prone on a table) and a few close matches going our way, we may have avoided relegation, but it was not to be.
The experience to compete on the courts of the WTA and ATP event, for your County against quality opposition is one to cherish.
Thank you to everyone who made it possible, including our sponsors, Brenntag.
Captain : Jason Revill
