DATCHWORTH TENNIS CLUB
NEWSLETTER MAY 2016
Summer is here – or is it? Wimbledon starts at the end of June, a number of our members have been successful in getting tickets.
Our own season is well underway; the Datchworth Summer League and Club matches are all in progress. In the Datchworth League last year all teams gained promotion so can expect some tough games. The first team, up in Division 3B, is now placed midway in their new division. Our second team, in Division 5B is holding it’s own, and is lying in second place. The third team in Division 7A is playing well, some hard tennis. I was fortunate to watch part of their game against Welwyn. All games have three players and three games are played; the lady plays with the first man; then with the second man; and the final match is a Men’s Doubles. Maggie and Steve Allan and Calum O’Connor did us proud. They won 2 games to 1. The scores being in the first mixed doubles 6 – 7; in the second 7 – 6; and the Mens Doubles 7 – 6, the Mens Doubles 7 – 6. As the scores tell a very exciting match. Full details of up-to-date division tables can be found on the very good web site :- www.datchworth.net
The Club Tournaments have started – the finals to be played on a date in July yet to be confirmed.
