TENNIS: Grantham ladies triumph at home

Have your say

Grantham Tennis Club ladies played at home, triumphing 12-6 for another great win against a strong Farnsfield side at the weekend.

The team consisted of Lorraine Walton and Tracy Hobson, Elaine Maplethorpe and Karen Pye-Smith, and Elaine and Rachel Pulfree

It was a great match with some closely fought sets, especially the final one which went to a tie-break, ably won 7-5 by Lorraine and Tracy.

l The men’s second team played away at Magdala. Grantham’s youthful side comprised of Rob Start, Nathan Gunning, Karel Meuwissen, Toby King, Josh King and Michael Cragg.

However, they were unable to make a big impact on the strong Magdala team and lost 12-6 overall.

It was their third defeat out of three in the Nottinghamshire League and things will need to improve if they are to avoid relegation.
