TENNIS: Grantham mixed second string top the league

Have your say

Grantham Tennis Club mixed seconds played away against Eastgate on Thursday night.

Grantham had a strong team in Jon Quinn and Melanie Bloodworth, Andrew Isaac and Liz Stokes, and Mark Harris and Jackie Wilson.

The visitors were defeated by Eastgate in the previous two years, but Grantham took the win by 5-4 (62-55 games).

Huge congratulations go to the Grantham team who are currently sitting at the top of Lincs Division One.

On Saturday, the men’s seniors second team played their last match of the summer season. The team of Jarek Mechlinski, Johnny Ng, Mike Roys and Jonathan Francis beat Rustons 3-1 and are currently top of the league but, with games in hand for other teams, it looks likely that Grantham will finish second and Boston will win the division
