WHITBY Endeavour’s first match of the season was a 5-5 draw against Scalby Old Boys who were a lot younger and fitter than the Whitby team despite their name.

It was a close and hard-fought match with both teams playing well.

For Whitby, Graham Cripps and Ken Benford both managed two singles wins out of three, while Rob Placket contributed one valuable singles win to leave Whitby 5-4 up with just the doubles to play.

Cripps and Benford played against Scalby’s David Makepeace and Alistair Hutchinson but were not quite on their best form and the Scalby pair played extremely well to take the doubles in three ends for a fair result in the end.
