Team Tennis Update
Tue, 30 Jul 2019 00:00
We are past the midway point of the summer tennis season and here is an update on the club's teams in the local tennis leagues.
It has been a tough year so far, results wise. In the Harrogate and District Mixed Tennis league, only the first team currently third in Division 1 are safe from possible relegation. The second team is 8th out 8 in Division 1, the thirds are 5th in Division 3 and the fourth team are 7th in Division 5. It's been an encouraging week with the third team beating Knaresborough A 68-40 and the fifth team beating local rivals David Lloyd C away 56-52. Onwards and upwards.
In the York men's league, the first team is 7th out of 8 in Division 1 and the thirds are 6th in Division 3.
Finally, the Ladies first team are 4th out of 9 in Division 1 of the Yorkshire League.
Regular injuries and people's busy lives restricting players' availability are making it tough for us to win. I would like to thank all those players who have played up in higher divisions so that we can always fulfil our fixtures. It's tough sometimes but good for our tennis.
You can follow the progress of the mixed teams on the hdtl.co.uk website. Please take a look and follow progress.
I would like to thank the tennis captains for their unstinting commitment in organising their teams on a weekly basis. Finally, I wish the players all the very best for the last few weeks of the summer season.
