Grantham Tennis Club ladies’ National Aegon team continued their success in this prestigious competition with another win over Beechwood in Derbyshire.

The team consisted of Jane Hunter and Lianne Tapson, both of whom have recently represented England in their respective age groups at the Four Nations event in Glasgow, plus Maia Dunn and Laura Cooper.

All played well, especially Maia to win her match, and overall the team won six matches to nil.

Their next match will be away at Cardiff in a couple of weeks.

GTC mixed fourth team travelled to Burton Waters last Wednesday.

Despite several matches only being won or lost by a single game and some great tennis played by all 12 players, GTC came out second, losing 6-3 in rubbers and 61-38 in games.

The team was Mike Roys and Laura Dixon, Jerry Deacon and Wendy Bland, and Chris Matthews and Sue Baxter.

The senior men’s second team took on Sleaford on Sunday.

Nigel Birch, Mark Gray, Liam Fitzpatrick and Jarek Mechlinski were too strong for the opposition, winning all four matches in two sets.
