Tennis is hit by weather

DUE to adverse weather conditions, three matches out of a possible five for the two men’s teams of Sleaford Tennis Club have had to be cancelled since the start of the season.

However, the Sleaford A team, playing in the Lincolnshire League have managed to get some action and secured an emphatic 9-0 win against Bourne 3.

The Sleaford team for that game was Robert Wright/Jeff Mitchell, Kevin Hawkesworth/Alexandru Vianu and Sam Taylor/Simon Moss.

They followed it up with a comprehensive 7-2 win against Bourne 2, when the team was Lloyd Bailey/Jeff Mitchell, Kevin Hawkesworth/Rob Wright, Simon Moss/Sam Taylor.

These results have contributed to a good start to the season on the club’s new courts in spite of the weather.
