Have your say

Grantham Tennis Club ladies’ first team finished the season undefeated to claim the Nottinghamshire Winter League Division Three title.

In their final match on Saturday, they beat second-placed Woodthorpe A 71-39. The Grantham side comprised Lianne Tapson and Mel Bloodworth (25-11), Wendy Stewart and Mell Milner (26-10), and Pam Aust and Veronica Stephens (20-16)

The other winning scores for the season were over Keyworth 69-39, The Park 80-28, Southwell 90-18, Musters A 96-12 and Burton Joyce 85-23.

Following their exceptional season, Grantham’s ladies can now look forward to tennis in Division Two next winter.

l The men’s fourth team played their last winter league match at the weekend but unfortunately could not end the season on a high as they lost 91-17 to a very strong David Lloyd side. The team consisted of Joe Patton and Tom White, John Legard and Tom Horton, and Harry Larkin and David Hall.

l The Summer League kicked off at the weekend with the under-16s winning 12-0 away to a Deeping side. The strong Grantham team comprised Dom Newcombe, Michael Cragg, Tom White and Joe Patton.

It was a great win for the boys who are now looking forward to their second match of the season in a fortnight’s time when they face Eastgate with home advantage.
