Saturday 22nd April 2017

Result: IC of GB Under 35s 3 – 5 IC of GB Over 35s

Venue: LTA National Tennis Centre

 

The annual members’ over 35s versus under 35s match took place once again on the indoor hard courts at the National Tennis Centre, Roehampton. The match was captained by Philippa Coates (under 35s) and Barry Cowan (over 35s) and provided a debut opportunity for new member Sean Thornley, who remained undefeated on the day.

 

The match was tied 2-2 after the first round of men’s and ladies doubles. However, the over 35s team claimed three of the four mixed rubbers in the second round of play to claim a 5-3 victory overall.

 

It was a great match to get the season underway.

 

Our thanks to the LTA for allowing us to host the fixture at the prestigious National Tennis Centre.
