It started shak­ily for Tawa-Lyn­d­hurst whose No 2 Marcel Glover was ham­pered by a shoul­der in­jury.

Premier in­ter­club ten­nis re­sumed on Satur­day with Tawa-Lyn­d­hurst prov­ing just as dom­i­nant as be­fore Christ­mas.

The men’s side dropped one match in its open­ing round games against Mi­ra­mar.

It started shak­ily for TawaLyn­d­hurst due to No 2 Marcel Glover play­ing hurt.

He was ham­pered by a shoul­der in­jury and re­tired early to Mi­ra­mar’s Rob­bie Barns­ley af­ter los­ing the first set 6-4.

Glover later re­turned to the court for the dou­bles, serv­ing un­der­arm, but do­ing enough in part­ner­ship with Michael McGlinchey to take the win against Barns­ley and Josh Hamp­ton 6-3 6-4.

Olly Sadler was pushed to three sets by Mi­ra­mar’s Jaden Grin­ter, 6-2 3-6 6-2, and again in the dou­bles along­side Fran­cis Glover, when they won 6-2 4-6 10-3 against Grin­ter and Daniel Hawk.

In the women’s premier divi­sion it was a list­less start for preChrist­mas run­ners-up Khan­dal­lah who were up­set by Tawa-Lyn­d­hurst on a 3-3 count­back.

Ivy McLean beat Tawa’s Mag­gie Dai 6-1 6-0 but her Khan­dal­lah team­mates lost the re­main­ing sin­gles.

Teams are vy­ing for a spot in the premier grand fi­nal de­ter­mined by the high­est com­bined points from both pre and post-Christ­mas com­pe­ti­tions.
