AMHERST PIP THE GREEN IN WEALDEN TRIUMPH

The 12-month 2018/19 Wealden Tennis League, contested in a mixed doubles format, came to a climax earlier this month (April)  when Amherst pipped The Green by the narrowest of margins. Equal on points they won one match more, and thus claimed the Division 1 title. Indeed Amherst, captained by Sarah Chapman, remained unbeaten for the entire season. 

Amherst 2, captained by Julia Masters, were runners-up in Division 2, also narrowly squeezing above The Green 2, so they gain promotion to Division 1 along with Hawkhurst. 

Amherst 3 entered a third team for the first time, captained by Sandra Goodsell. They finished a respectable 3rd in Division 3. 

The Wealden League goes from strength to strength each year with very enjoyable but competitive  tennis in all divisions.
