The Spike or Victoria University College Review 1935

Interclub Matches

Interclub Matches.

The Club entered what is probably a record number of teams in Inter-Club matches during the season. The Fourth Division A team did best of the lower grades, winning four matches out of seven; the Fifth won one out of four, and the Third Women's and the two Third Men's each won one and lost five mathes. Of the Senior teams, the Second Division Men's won three matches out of six; the First Division Ladies' had no wins at all, a result not unexpected when it is understood that the team was entered in the Second Division, but being the only entrant was played in the First Division rather than in the Third, in accordance with the wishes of the W.L.T.A. The First Division B Men's team won one match out of six. But the performance of the First Division A team overshadows any shortcomings of the others and it is very pleasing to be able to record the fact that this Club holds the Senior Championship Shield.

Results in detail follow:—

1st Division Men A Team: 6 wins, no losses.
