Ten­nis tal­ents serve up suc­cess in ju­nior and veteran con­tests

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORING -

TEN­NIS play­ers from Prest­bury have been cel­e­brat­ing a num­ber of suc­cesses.

Five young­sters came very close to tak­ing the trophy while com­pet­ing in the Youatt Cup, which was played at Prest­bury Ten­nis Club.

Ten teams en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion this year, and the tour­na­ment be­gan with round robin matches played in boxes to de­ter­mine the four teams which would go through to the semi fi­nals.

Ruth Moyes, a mem­ber of the club, said: “Prest­bury beat a team from Brabyns in the semi fi­nal and then went on to play Bramhall Lane in the fi­nal in swel­ter­ing heat.

“The girls put up a valiant fight but lost their match to two very ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers and the boys team drew – win­ning the first set 6-3 and nar­rowly los­ing the sec­ond set in a tie break.

“It was a fan­tas­tic ef­fort from all play­ers and as run­ners up they won a cheque for £150 for Prest­bury Ten­nis club. Well done.”

Ladies from the club also com­peted in the Ladies Vet­er­ans Cheshire Plate com­pe­ti­tion – win­ning the tour­na­ment.

Ruth added: “Our ladies bat­tled hard in the fi­nal of the Cheshire Vet­er­ans Plate and emerged vic­to­ri­ous.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions to all who played in the fi­nal and the other matches lead­ing up to it.”
