The ladies have had an excellent season in Division 3b winning all their 5 matches (results below). The match on Saturday 5th August against Kingsgate ensured promotion to Division 2 next season.
The team won 9-0 but it was not all plain sailing and, in particular, Fi Strachan and Vicki Blewitt showed grit and determination by winning their matches over a mammoth 5 hours non stop! Ros Hursell and Kate Sloan played first pair and won all 3 of their rubbers in a calm and collected way, losing only 10 games in all. Lizzie Austin and Claire Reid playing in wind and rain, occasionally being interrupted by torrential downpours, secured their 3 rubbers ensuring a full sweep.
Thanks to all the ladies that have taken the time to play for Andover during the summer to ensure promotion for the team. Jennie Pope, Anne Brook and Nicky Hepworth have also made a huge contribution as well as the 6 ladies mentioned above. Ladies tennis at Andover goes from strength to strength and we look forward to the challenges that next season will bring.
