Notts LTA Division D title triumph for Newark Tennis Club ladies' second side
Celebrations continued for Newark Tennis Club after the ladies’ 2nd team claimed the Notts LTA Division D title.
Sara Jackson said it was a fantastic debut season for the team, who won all six of their matches to top the league with 12 points.
“The team was made up of many of the club’s female membership, who have all played well together to achieve this result,” said Jackson.
In total, the team dropped just 11 sets over the season, meaning they won 84.7% of all sets.
Also celebrating were the men’s 2nd team, which was led out at by stand-in captain James Barker and, with his partner, Nick Crouch, the duo took 12 games to put Newark ahead.
First pair, Todor Malinov and Edgars Barvinski, were on the wrong side of some close deuce games as they lost 30-6, while Hari Kolli and Vince Bashforth lost 29-7.
It was Newark’s first loss (83-25) in Division 10 of the winter season (83-25).
