Skilful play in the singles helps home team dominate
A mixed team of Scunthorpe players acquitted themselves well, but found York in devastating form in their meeting in the National Top Club Competition.
This competition is played on a knockout basis and in a format that includes ladies and men's singles, mixed pairs, mixed triples and mixed fours.
York & District are an extremely strong club, attracting some quality players as well as a number of exceptionally talented young players so this was always going to be a difficult fixture.
Scunthorpe arrived at York well-prepared for a battle.
