Grantham Tennis Club ladies’ veteran second team annihilated a very strong Nettleham side in a confidence-boosting performance.

The team consisted of captain Pam Aust, Jo Jones, Sue Cox and Yvonne Walker and played some blinding tennis, with Pam and Jo winning their matches 6-0, 6-2 and 6-0, 6-4, and Sue and Yvonne triumphing 6-1, 6-2 and 6-3, 6-0.

The ladies did not drop a single set during the whole match and won it comfortably 48 games to 12.

l Grantham TC ladies’ first team lost a match at home 4-1 against Louth in the Lincolnshire Winter League, although the final scoreline did not reflect the closeness of the competition.

The team was made up of Lianne Tapson, Ella Tapson, Mellony Milner and Melanie Bloodworth. Playing singles, Lianne Lianne won her match 6-2, 6-2, but unfortunately Ella lost hers 6-0, 6-2, despite battling well and giving her all.

Mellony and Melanie were the doubles players and put up a great battle. Luck was not on their side despite managing to take both their matches to a third set tie-break, and both matches were lost 6-4, 4-6 (5-10).
