TENNIS: Grantham’s mixed teams enjoy mixed results
Two of Grantham Tennis Club’s mixed teams enjoyed mixed results at the weekend.
Grantham 4th travelled to The Park, in Nottingham, hoping to keep their unbeaten run going. The side consisted of captain Lorraine Walton and David Todd, Colin Walton and Sheena Gordine, and Martin Garratt and Katy Dines.
The match was very closely fought and played in great spirits by both sides, with Grantham taking a great 64-44 victory to remain unbeaten in the league in four games.
With two games remaining and the season coming to an end, Lorraine’s team will be hoping to get good results to seem them promoted back into Division Eight of the Nottinghamshire League, having been automatically moved down from Division Nine to allow in a new team.
l Grantham’s mixed second string lost to West Bridgford in the Indoor League, despite fielding a strong team.
The 46-15 defeat was not a complete surprise as the Bridgford side are known to be a powerful team. Grantham fielded Jackie Wilson, Mel Milner, Karel Meuwissen and Ivo Marsik, and expected to give Bridgford a tough game, but on the night they were blown out of the water.
