Wymondham Shufflers took up the challenge from neighbours Ashwellthorpe for another enjoyable contest on their roll-out courts.The singles went 6-1 in Ashwellthorpe’s favour so the contest was pretty much over from that point. As the Wymondham players became more accustomed to the courts their performance improved but the home side still ran out 11-5 winners.
A generous grant of nearly £3000 from South Norfolk Council has enables the newly titled Wymondham Shufflers to buy all-new competition sized Maxi Roll Out courts. Numbers of players at the regular bi-weekly session are on the rise so this gives everyone the chance to play on the perfect surface. Two of the courts are now treated with tiny plastic beads before play making them as fast as the traditional concrete courts in the States. This adds to the challenge and makes the game considerably more tactical.
