The Slazenger Summer Doubles League got under way for Horncastle Tennis Club’s Men’s team on Saturday.

Making his debut appearance for the men was 12-year-old Ross Armstrong. He certainly wasn’t daunted by the occasion and played a good solid game partnering his coach Karl Sutton.

The second pair were also a young pairing, 15-year-olds Alden Midmer and Ben Wilkinson. Steve Holmes and Dan Dalton were the third pair. All three pairs won all of their sets for a 9-0 win for Horncastle.

Horncastle Tennis Club is taking part in the LTA’s Great British Tennis Weekend initiative on Saturday May 16. Between 1pm and 4pm there will be various free tennis sessions and coaching. To book a place visit lta.org.uk/gbtw and search for the Horncastle event.
