Horncastle Tennis Club’s Ladies first team played their last match of the Lincolnshire Doubles League on Sunday.

Playing at home against Louth this week were Mireya MacRury and Jenny Golland, Jessica Nugent and Di Jones and Shirley Sutton and Lorna Bowser.

Mireya and Jenny played well to only lose 10 games throughout the whole 6 sets and win all 3 rubbers comfortably. Shirley and Lorna only lost 12 games during the afternoon and also won all 3 rubbers. Jessica and Di won 2 rubbers but lost the third on a tie break.

The ladies were pleased to finish the league with an 8-1 win which puts them in fourth place in the league.

Next weekend the ladies second team travel to Bourne for their last match. They remain undefeated so far this season so a win at Bourne would secure their promotion next year.
