The A Team won 3 and lost 2 of their matches and came 2nd Overall, and the B Team won 2 and lost 3 but came 3rd Overall. We came 3rd in the overall standings. It was a fun morning and there were six clubs playing in total – Boskruin (Austria) who played a very strong team and won both sections comfortably, Mondeor (Portugal), Jeppe (Greece), Italian Club (Italy), Kenrho (Great Britain) and us. The Mixed tournament of the ITT will be played on 2nd August.
