Newark Lawn Tennis Club

The end of winter

Newark Lawn Tennis Club Mixed 1st team ended their winter season in Div 7 with a convincing win over Magdala C. Newark started at 36-0 as Magdala failed to field a full team of 6. Although the Newark side had to take it in turns waiting this didn’t hamper their results as 1st pair Sam Smith/Sara Jackson continued to be ruthless and took their matches 11-1, 12-0 (35-1). Adrian/Steph Smith were back on court after missing the previous match and conceded only 5 games at 9-3, 10-2 (31-5). Sam Butler playing again this time with Tamara Bainbridge took 8-4, 7-5 (27-9). The team now celebrate another team promotion as they finish top of the league, 4 points ahead. 

In the meantime the Ladies 2nd started their summer campaign in Div D of the short format league. Sara Jackson/Annie Davies playing together for the first time took their single set matches against 2nd & 3rd pairs 6-0, 6-0 and their double set match against 1st pair 6-1,6-1. Similarly Katrina Dines/Jill Pinder 6-0, 7-5 then 6-0,6-1 and Cptn Lynne Hare/Annie Walton 6-3, 6-0 then 6-0,6-1 in an overall team result 73-12.
