Horncastle Tennis Club’s juniors have been in action again this weekend and racking up the wins in the County Mini Tennis League held at Boston Indoor Tennis Centre.

The opposition this week was Grantham Tennis Club. Playing for the U8 team were Max Wilson, Redford Bramley, Turner Kingswood and Joseph Flint.

There were some very close matches and the boys had to maintain their concentration to pull off some great wins. Max and Redford both won 3 out of 4 of their singles and then teamed up to win their doubles too. Turner and Joseph won 2 singles each but lost their doubles. Final score, a very credible 11-7 to Horncastle.

The U9 team of Lucas Abbott and Ella Rennie didn’t manage any wins but improved their point scores from last week.

The U10 team of Joe Sheldon and Alexander Armstrong were on fine form with Joseph winning all his matches with the loss of just 4 games while Alexander won 2 out of 3 of his matches. Final result 4-1 to Horncastle so an overall 2-1 win for the mini team.
