THERE was plenty to celebrate at Bromsgrove Tennis Club as three of their ladies teams recorded impressive victories in the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Winter Tennis League.

The Ladies C Team saw off a traditionally strong Evesham A side thanks to back-to-back wins for doubles pairing Debbie Oliver and Joan McGregor.

Ann Banner and Di Wilson then showed real determination in two long three set battles to secure the extra victory needed to give Bromsgrove a decisive 3-1 win.

It was a similar story for the Ladies F Team who beat Belbroughton B 3-1 in their Division Nine battle. Alison Douglas and Carol Cornellison were commanding as they won both their encounters, while Cynthia Colley and Jane Corbett completed the victory.

The Ladies G Team also claimed bragging rights in their 3-1 win as they defeated local rivals David Lloyd Bromsgrove in Division Ten.

Sue Corfield and Naomi Moore strolled to two straight forward wins, while Di Horton and Clare Hancox lost their opening contest in a final set tie-break but then stormed back to win their second.

Ladies captain Sally Franks said: “It’s been a great week for the ladies.

“The practice put in and strong team spirit at the club is paying dividends as all the teams are doing well after promotion last year.

One of the best performances of the weekend came from Bromsgrove Men’s F Team as they trounced Stourport D 4-0, with father and son duo of Roger and Duncan Lewis helping to guide their side to a comfortable victory.

The only disappointment of the week was for the Mixed C Team who lost by the narrowest of margins to Moreton-in-Marsh.
