Hamilton Tennis Club started their summer fixtures in less than summery weather when the men’s super-vets team of Doug Hacking, Steve Thompson, Joe Cunningham and Steve Plaistow took on Roundhill.
Despite the wind and drizzle both teams enjoyed a well-contested match, won 6-2 by Roundhill, with Doug and Steve recording the two winning sets.
Match practice sessions continue under the supervision of head coach Bruce Tarran.
Members are also preparing for their open day on Saturday for anyone who would like to try their hand at tennis or brush up on their rusty skills.
It will be a drop-in session from 10am to 1pm for families and individuals of all ages and abilities.
Free coaching will be available and rackets can be provided. Just turn up in trainers and something comfortable.
