Summer League Tennis at Wells

Mens League Report

The League season ended with mixed fortunes for Wells’ various men’s teams. The A Team had a closely fought battle with Wedmore B and were edged out 8-3. Unfortunately Matt Goatcher and Marcus Fisher failed to pick up any sets in their two matches but Tomas Simko and Kevin Durney won one match and lost a close 3 set match 6-4, 5-7, 5-7. This result left them in 3rd place in Division 2, missing out on promotion by 2 points.

The B Team had their chances but only managed to pick up 2 points at home to Priory A. However that was enough to see them promoted after a strong season in Division 5. They are looking forward to the challenges of a tougher division next season.

The C Team needed a convincing win and for results to go their way in order to avoid relegation from Division 5. Unfortunately neither happened as they lost 10-0 away to Avenue C while Priory A picked up points against Wells B. Consequently they will be in Division 6 next season. They will be joined by Wells D who sealed promotion with an emphatic 10-1 win at home to Congresbury B in Division 7. That put them in second place – equal on points with first place Winscombe C.

Men’s Captain Matt Goatcher said “After a competitive season with some great matches and the usual peppering of injuries two promotions from four teams is a pleasing result. I am already looking forward to getting the teams ready for next season.”

Ladies League Report

Well Done Everyone!

The 2016 Ladies’ League Season has been a very successful one. The NSTL website has been updated to show that all three teams have reached their pre-season objectives: the A team has achieved promotion to division 1 and the B and C teams have held their places in division 3 and 4 respectively. These are brilliant results and a just reward for all your efforts on court.

We would like to thank all of you for your commitment and support and for being such good ambassadors for our club.

Roll on next season and keep practising!!
Jeannie and Clare (Ladies Team Captains)
