Regentville versus SPANS Tennis Friendly

The Regentville condo tennis team had our last friendly match this year against the SPANS Balestier tennis team. This was the fourth tennis match we had this year and it nearly didn't happen due to the November monsoon season which came earlier this year. The initial match against the SPANS Balestier team was actually scheduled for the 25 November, but it had to be postponed due to the sudden afternoon showers that came as sudden as it went. It was such a pity, as most of the Regentville players were already warming up in anticipation for the game. What our players did not anticipate was the rain. Here are some shots taken during the warm sessions prior to the rain and after the rain. As well as a bird's eye view of the tennis courts from my room.
We experienced lots of rainfall towards to end of November and postponed the match to 9 December, two Saturdays later. It nearly threatened to rain on us again on that day, but fortunately the weather held up for us to finish all our games. Due to the weather, which wreck havoc on our schedules, we didn't have the services or Rico and Yoshi with us this time. The SPAN team also had less players than they originally had but were kind enough to play several extra games with our players.

From the start, the SPANS players clearly dominated the match in every aspect of the game. Besides their ability to communicate well as a team, they displayed solid consistent doubles game play with a blend of power, finesse and skill. I was particularly impressed with their mastery of the serves, volley and smashes all important components of good tennis doubles play. Kelvin Lam one of the SPANS player and coordinator clearly showed us why he is one half of the STA Intermediate Doubles champions by playing a near flawless display of tennis. The SPANS players were without doubt a level above most of our players and displayed such a high quality of consistent playing. Our players didn't really have much of a chance to get into the groove of play.

Hopefully from this experience, we will be able to reassess our weaknesses and try to focus on improving here on. I however must commend both team for taking the time and effort to make this event a success. I would like to personally Thank the SPANS team especially Eric Foo and Kelvin Lam, the SPANS team coordinators, for helping us organize this friendly and coming all the way to Hougang despite the unpredictable weather to play with us.
