Wicklow Tennis Club news
THE SEVEN teams representing Wicklow Tennis Club in the Dublin Lawn Tennis Council Winter League all played their matches on Sunday last.
Each team consists of three doubles pairings. The men were out first in the morning with three home matches.
The first team under the captaincy of John Ward were unfortunate to lose their three games to Clontarf in a home draw. James Gormley and his second team travelled to De Vesci and enjoyed a 3-0 win.
John Sexton and his third team also enjoyed a 3-0 win at home to Fitzwilliam and Glenn Malone’s fourth team who had an early start at 9.30 a.m. won 2-1 against Glasnevin at home.
The ladies took to the courts in the afternoon. Shionnagh Downey and her first team had great matches in their first round against Naas but lost out narrowly to gaining points.
Catherine Merrigan’s second team headed to Rathgar where they enjoyed a 3-0 win. Michelle HenderPhillips and her third team were narrowly defeated by Co. Wicklow Lawn Tennis Club when they lost 1-2.
Well done to all the players and subs and we wish all the teams well next Sunday.
