TENNIS: Clean sweep for Louth Tennis Club

At Louth Tennis & Sports Centre Louth 9&U took on Tennis Buddies in the Aegon Team Tennis League.

The match took place on the outside courts and the conditions were really bad. The team of Ryan Scaman, Thomas Scott, Lewis Dean and Thomas Dyson all played really well and won all their games. The Tennis Buddies team were Ben Shirley, Matt Green, Chloe Leggate and Miles Galbraith.

In the Regional Aegon League, Louth 14&U travelled to Tipton. Ben Bertie and Jake Sherrick had really good wins in their singles matches against players with better ratings and Josh Elliot and Dom Batey lost their matches on championship tie breaks. Josh and Ben lost their doubles match on a championship tie break. Jake and Dom lost their doubles to strong opposition. The result was 8-4 to Tipton.

The Louth Mens 2nd team travelled to Appleby Frodingham for their match and faced strong opposition there. The team of Joe Allinson, Andrew Simpson, Dibber Clark, Tim Strawson, Marcus McVeigh and Ian Roscoe lost 7-2, losing four rubbers on championship tied breaks.

The Ladies 2nd team played at Eastgate and in the rain won convincingly 9-0. The team was Penny Daniel and Anne Laing, Sarah and Rachel Allinson, and Janet Shepherd and Ruth East.

The Ladies 3rd team played their first match of the season against Boston 5 at Boston and after a long rain delay finished the match on the inside courts late in the evening. The result was 5-4 to Boston. Wendy Harrison and Jane Conner won two of their matches. Liz Coulam and Clare Tye won one match and lost the other two on championship tie breaks and Trish Barford and Carly North won one match and lost two, one on a championship tie break. It was Trish and Carly’s first match and they performed really well.
