The Galloway News - - SPORT -

TEN­NIS Kirkcud­brightTen­nis Club has en­tered a women’s team in the lo­cal league for the sec­ond time.

In the open­ing match, the team gave a much im­proved per­for­mance against a strong Dal­beat­tie team.

While they did not achieve an out­right win in any of the pair­ings, many of the matches con­sisted sev­eral deuces and sets were closely fought go­ing to 6-4, 6-4 in one of matches.

The team of Chris­tine Agnew, Jill John­ston, Deb­bie McColm andWendy Roscoe then trav­elled to An­nan and demon­strated their con­tin­u­ing im­prove­ment by win­ning all four matches.

The team is lead by non-play­ing cap­tain June Nel­son and sup­ported by a num­ber of re­serve play­ers.

There was a good turn out of young play­ers for the Easter camp run by the club dur­ing the school hol­i­days.

Around 20 young­sters took part in coach­ing ses­sions lead by Mark Sin­dall and as­sisted by Lily Judge.

Ju­nior coach­ing is held on Satur­day morn­ings and any young­sters who would like to learn to play ten­nis should con­tact the club sec­re­tary on 0788583445­8.
