Barnt Green are cooking

BARNT Green Tennis Club’s Men’s B Team sent struggling Cookley A Team home packing with a 4-0 hiding in Division Four East of the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Men’s Winter League.

Paul Gordon and Chris Linsell rolled back the years to win their matches 6-2 6-0 and 6-3 6-3, while Martyn Langston and Andrew Yair took a while to rub the Sunday morning sleep from their eyes before prevailing 6-7 6-4 6-2 against the visiting first pair and 6-1 6-2 against the seconds.

Elsewhere, Barnt Green’s Ladies A Team struggled to overcome an stubborn Ross-On-Wye A side who prevailed 3-1 in the Division Two clash on Sunday.

Visitors Rose were clearly determined to reap the benefits of the longest journey in the league and used the damp, sluggish conditions to their advantage.

First pair of Jane Hampson and Pauline Harman won one and lost one but frustration got the better of big-hitting second pair of Beth Harris and Victoria Clipsham who lost both rubbers to leave Barnt Green waiting for their first win of the season.
