Ladies D vs Cheddar D
The D team finished the season on a high, with the pairings of Arabella and Ruth , Jeannie and Sarah M, winning all their matches in straight sets, resulting in a 10-0 victory over Cheddar D. This result means the team will finish 3rd (out of six teams), in division 7 of the NSTL, which is an improvement over the 4th (out of six) teams in 2017, so well done everyone! Captain Jeannie says “thank you to all of you for your fantastic commitment and enthusiasm over the season and for laying on such great post match teas!”
Ladies C vs Wedmore D
Well – we ended on a high! Despite our best efforts to stay in division 5 it looks like we are going to be promoted! Beat Wedmore D 10-2 after a lot of faffing around but delighted with a good result. Looks as if all the ladies teams won on the last night (though I understand equal on games for the As and just more games for the Bs – with us having lost one in the season by one game and another by two) so an excellent season all round.
Captain Clare said “thanks for keeping us all organised Julia, at least the second half wasn’t quite such a nightmare as the first! Well done too for consolidating your position in the A team.”
Ladies D vs Bridgwater D
Ladies A vs Wrington A
Wells Ladies A-team played away against Wrington A and lost with 3-8 points against the current Division 2 leader. The pair Wendy Edwards and Caroline Moule lost 0-6 1-6 against a well playing 1st pair of Wrington. Unfortunately the second rubber didn’t go much better with another loss of 1-6 1-6. But the stars for Wells were Erika Cotton and Julia Nest who managed a good win against Wrington’s 2nd pair with 6-2 7-5. Their second rubber had to be decided in a championship tie-break, which was unfortunately lost 4-6 7-5 10-4. Wells team is pleased to get another 3 points, which hopefully all add up to remain in Division 2.
If you have any feedback on the season / league tennis /pairings etc, please feel free to give it so that I can pass your comments on to Julia to bear in mind for next season. We want to make your tennis as enjoyable as possible! Of course you can email Julia directly if you prefer.
Next Tuesday is the ladies’ summer party at Sarah Powell’s, so I hope to see most of you there. Thereafter, Tuesday evening ladies’ tennis is open to all to come down and mix in.
