Looking back on the website, I have realised that for the first time since we have had the website up and running in 2009, that both Gauteng A and B qualified in the top four and finished first and second, no other Union has done this before.
In 2010 at Irene, Gauteng North A won and Gauteng A were third in Section 1 and Gauteng were third in Section 2.
In 2011 at George, Gauteng North A won and Gauteng A were runners up and Gauteng B came third in Section 2.
Our teams have once again excelled themselves. Gauteng A gave Gauteng North A a serious drubbing when they beat them 8-1. Kajal and Eleonora won their foursomes match 5&4, Woo-Ju and Natasha won 6&4 and Ivanna and Kaleigh lost their match 3&2. They won all their singles matches. Eleonora 6&4, Kajal 4&2, Tash 4&3, Woo-Ju 3&2, Kaleigh 3&2 and Ivanna 3&2
Gauteng B have won their match today against Gauteng North A, a brilliant result. They beat them 5 points to 4 which means they win the 2 match points available for today. They will be taking on Gauteng North B tomorrow. The results for the foursomes this morning were as follows :- Chiara and Symone won their match 4&3, Shawnelle and Kaiyuree lost their match 2&1 and Jacqui and Lauren lost their match 5&3.
