TENNIS: Grantham teams win in Nottingham League

Have your say

Grantham Tennis Club’s first team played in the Nottingham Indoor League at the weekend.

The team consisted of captain Richard Cragg, Charlotte Palul, James Drennan and Mel Milner, and endured a tough match as the opposition they faced were West Bridgford 2nd. The men lost their doubles but the ladies managed to win theirs.

The mixed doubles could not have gone better as Grantham triumphed in both, giving them a comfortable overall winning margin.

The men’s second team played at home to a strong Wollaton side. Grantham fielded a strong team and the pairings were Toby King and Josh King, Nigel Birch and captain Colin Walton, and Mark Ottey and Martin Garrett.

They all played exceptionally well together to win pretty comfortably, 65 games to 43.

The victory gives Grantham a very good chance of finishing high in the league.
