Victories for Melton Mowbray Tennis Club vets
Two team successes...
Melton Mowbray Tennis Club’s Ladies and Mens over 40s teams both made a winning start to their season.
At Lutterworth Seconds the Ladies won a Division Six match 5-3 as Alison Stone and Jill Woods won four-sets (6-3, 7-5 and 6-3, 6-2) with Jo Anderson and Bridget Ingle collecting one (6-4, 1-6 and 4-6, 1-6).
The Men’s team entertained Oaks and District in Division Six, winning 6-2.
Debutant Stephen Thompson and Justin Horobin ensured victory by duly collecting their two sets 6-3, 6-1 against an opposition with just one pair. Stuart Mullard and Kevin Knowles just failed to clinch a set despite being involved in many lengthy rallies, going down 6-3, 6-3.
