Newark Tennis Club's club captain has made promotion the goal for all mixed teams.

Having returned from last year’s covid-19 restrictions with just as much passion, Sara Jackson said the club was on an upward trajectory.

“From a club captain perspective teams have continued from their success in the summer with high levels of player engagement,” said Jackson.

“We have fielded ten teams across the Notts Winter League and Notts Winter National League.

“To date we’ve played 18 of our 54 scheduled matches.

“We are particularly dominating in the mixed leagues and are yet to suffer a defeat and are aiming for promotion for all mixed teams.”

Newark were in action over the weekend with the men’s 1sts beating Keyworth 60-48 in Division Seven of the Notts Winter League on Sunday, following a draw with Notts Tennis Club in the Notts National League.

The fixture against Notts proved to be a special one as the individual matches went on for so long that they ran out of light, before settling with a 6-6 draw.

Both teams also took a rubber each on the doubles, with Hallam/Kennet (3-6, 7-5, 9-11) losing out on a tie-break and Barvinskis/Eden winning 7-5, 7-6.

At Keyworth, the men’s 1sts continue success in Division 7 with another away win. They took the match 60-48 with results from Sam Smith/Jon Thornton (9-3, 5-7, 10-2).

Todor Malinov/Edgars Barvinskis edged their games (6-6, 8-4, 7-5) while John Jessop/Ewan Kennett lost 21-15 (6-6, 3-9, 6-6).
