The Ladies’ Firsts played against Tennis Buddies on Wimbledon Men’s Finals Day.

In order not to miss seeing the final, the match was started at 10am, but the heat was still extreme.

Tennis Buddies were only able to turn out four players instead of a full team of six, so Woodhall had a head start but the rubbers were all very competitive and the tennis was of a high standard.

Woodhall came out on top with an impressive 12-0 scoreline.

Playing for Woodhall were Alison Lauder and Sue Leggate, Sue Bowser with Helen Mair and Bridgett Scott with Jenny Caswell.
