Grantham Tennis Club men’s fifth team travelled over to Magdala on Saturday afternoon to take on their opposition in the first fixture of the Notts Winter League.

A newly-formed team, they faced experienced opponents in Magdala and felt that they would do well to keep their heads above water, however they took the game to the hosts and produced some outstanding tennis.

Three pairings, playing 12 games each against the opposite pairings, saw the team come out 59-49 victors. Best result of the day was Matt Brookes and Will Kappen who beat their opponents 10-2. A great start to the Winter League with everyone playing to a very good standard.
