TENNIS: Grantham club boys come up against tough Boston side

Have your say

The only match played by Grantham Tennis Club at the weekend involved the 14-and-under boys’ team.

The side consisting of Joe Patton, Lewis Picker, Tom Horton and Adam Tapson faced an extremely strong Boston side.

The boys played extremely well with Joe Patton having to face a 7.1-rated player. After losing the first set, Joe had to battle extremely hard and fought back well, winning the second set and then going on to clinch the third set tiebreak to seal a great victory. Joe and Lewis then went on to win the doubles.

Tom and Adam fought well in their singles and the doubles, but unfortunately could not break down their Boston opponents.
