Louth Tennis: Senior men clinch thrilling victory at Boston

Louth Tennis and Sports Centre had another weekend full of team matches with some very exciting and tight results.

The senior men’s team travelled to Boston Seconds and won 3-1.

Tim Strawson and Robbin Jackson won their rubbers comfortably, while Mark Ryder and Duncan Hardcastle lost to their first pairing.

The tie depended on Duncan and Mark’s second match, and in a tense game, they won a championship tie break 10-8 to seal victory; a great result which leaves Louth in a strong league position.

* The Mini Orange team entertained Boston B and lost out by 7-3, but the team of Jessica Dyson, Finlay Cave, Henry Page-Nidd and George O’Connor acquitted themselves well against experienced opponents.

Jessica won both of her two singles, playing some very good tennis and then with partner Finlay she won the doubles.

Team-mates Henry and George played very well in all of their matches, showing some promising tennis, but were beaten by more experienced opponents.

* The under 14s girls’ team travelled to Tennis Buddies in the Aegon League and lost a very tight match 7-6.

The team of Lucy Wherry, Imogen Wherry, Florence Baxter and Phoebe Sutherland are a young and inexperienced team and produced a great effort.

* The Aegon men’s team hosted Appleby Frodingham and were comfortable 10-2 winners as Seb Darke, Morgan Vickers, Marcus McVeigh and Simon Pullan proved a strong combination.

* The Aegon ladies’ team played a strong Tennis Buddies team without two of their strongest players.

The team of Penny Daniel, Ruth East, Anna-Maria Broskov-Larsen, Looby Hardcastle, with Sarah Allinson playing the doubles, all played well but the result was never in doubt as Tennis Buddies won 6-0.
