Champs bar was playing away at Happy End Sports Bar. If there was a prize for the bar that knows how to have a good night out, Champs would take it with ease. The guys showed up one hour before the match and had a few drinks. When it was their turn to play some warm up games, they chose not to, and instead opted to continue enjoying the night.
Most of the games were pretty close and all in a great atmosphere. One doubles game had to be replayed because it was unclear who had won. The beer leg was a three setter and marginally won by Happy End, who managed to win the match 9-3 as the party continued for a few more of hours before the night was over.
Caddy Shack against Genius was postponed until Monday (Jan 14).
