Hill Lane

The clubs ladies returned to league tennis on Tuesday for the first time in many years. The opponents were Hill Lane (B). There was some very heavy rain during the afternoon but it cleared in time. As with the mens match the previous evening, the fixture went on into dusk, this one clocked as finishing at ten past nine.

Our first match of the season after many years absence from the league, brought on some nerves from those who had not played in the Summer league before.There were some closely fought matches with Jane and Jess taking all 3 sets to tie breaks against the visitors second team. Di and Vicky, playing together for the first time, had some great games which belied their final results. We may have lost but we had a team out, had some competitive tennis and most importantly had a very enjoyable evening.

The first points of the season : 27 to Plymstock, 71 to Hill Lane.
