Ladies serve up more success

BROMSGROVE Ladies scintillating start to the winter tennis season continued as all three teams in action were victorious to maintain their unbeaten run.

The most impressive win of the weekend was from the A Team as they dispatched Leominster A 4-0. The Division One clash was one sided from start to finish as the quartet of Tina Manning with Sally Franks and Jen Law with Rachael Mack swept victory without dropping a single set.

The C team of Joan McGregor with Millie Doherty and Ann Banner with Steph Armstrong also won 4-0 in a Division Five clash with Woolaston B.

They were pushed a little harder, though as McGregor and Doherty fought back to win a three set tussle in their opening contest after losing the first set.

The pressure was then on the G Team to maintain the run, but they overcame Halesowen, winning a tense Division 11 tie 3-1. Sue Corfield and Naomi Moore showed real grit to win their opening encounter in three sets after dropping the first set 6-0. Their second victory was more straightforward, while Avril Pugh and Chris Mitchell clinched the win for their team by beating their first opponents, which delighted Ladies captain Sally Franks, who has yet to taste defeat this season.

“To reach this stage of the season without a team being beaten is the best start anyone can remember,” she said.

“The pressure of not being the first team to lose is producing some tough fighting performances at all levels which is a real credit to all players.”
