With the home courts covered in snow, the Wells A-team was lucky to have an away match at Wedmore on Sunday 4th March against their C-team with snow free courts. However, some rain showers made play difficult at times.
The men’s doubles with Jonathan Parsons and Kevin Durney, had a quick win with 6-1 6-2 The ladies’ doubles with Sarah Townsend and Caroline Moule worked hard against opponents and weather, but lost 5-7 3-6. After a break with heavy showers, play with the mixed matches continued in sunshine.
The first pair Jon and Sarah won in three sets 7-6 4-6 6-3, second pair Kevin and Caroline won 6-4 6-4.
Overall Wells A won with 8-3 points. This was the last match for the A-team in this winter season 2017-2018. With 5 wins out of 10 matches and an overall points score of 57, the A-team should remain in Division 4. It will depend on the results of all the other club matches in that division still to be played, before the final standing is definite.
Captain Caroline Moule would like to thank Sarah Townsend, Wendy Edwards, Kevin Durney, Seth Cunningham, Ray Brook, Charles Tweed, Colin Blatchford-Brown, Derk Erkelens, Dave Mills, Neil Coleman and Jonathan Parsons who all played and contributed to the points.
