One Ladies and two Mens teams from the Oxford League played against the Oxford University teams at Kidlington Forum on Sunday 27th February, and this involved many Kidlington Forum members.

All three city teams won, the ladies winning 12-0, although this really wasn't a good reflection on the quality of the match; the university side put up stiff opposition, and there were so many fierce forehands flying back and forth!!

Elsewhere, in the middle of one of the men's singles matches, an enormous cheer went up, as finally a single rally that had lasted more than five minutes came to an end!
