Horncastle Tennis Club has had another busy week hosting the School Games Tennis Tournament with years 3 and 4 from St Andrew’s Woodhall Spa and Horncastle competing for a place in the area final.

For many of the children it was their first taste of tennis competition. St Andrew’s came out on top and will now play Burgh in the next round.

Horncastle’s U8s visited Tealby Tennis Club for a friendly match on Saturday afternoon. Hannah Downs had an amazing afternoon and won all her matches. Sam Baxter and Jensen Tyrrell won 5 out of 6 of their matches and Daisy Mills, Alex Frick and Jessica Frick all won matches too. A good win for Horncastle and a very enjoyable afternoon. The children enjoyed a match tea together outside in the sunshine.

On Sunday afternoon the ladies 2nd team were hosts to Boston 4. Playing this week were. Sally Speed and Karen Stott, Julie Hillsmith and Jane Reeds and Di Jones and Julie Smith.

Sally and Karen won all 3 of their rubbers but had to fight through a tie break twice. Both pairings of Julie and Jane and Di and Julie won 2 out of 3 of their rubbers so a convincing 7-2 win for Horncastle.
