Men’s Thirds miss out in tennis match

BOSTON Tennis Club’s men’s third team lost out to Louth Indoor in Division Three of the Lincolnshire Slazenger Doubles League.

The team of Chris Cook, John Gibson, Richard Tupper, Geoff Presland, Richard Hart and Geoff Short was up against an opposition on a mission and in this instance had to settle for second place.

The weather affected the club’s matches at the weekend, in particular those due to be played in the Lincolnshire Slazenger Doubles League.

In the Aegon Team County Division event, Boston’s under 16 boys were close to victory against Tennis Buddies but missed out on the tie-break play-off.

The team of Sam Felipes, Courtney George-Jones, David Cheer and Iestyn Halford made it level after the singles round and again it was an even 3-3 after the doubles round.

However, Tennis Buddies won the decider.

The Boston boys’ under 12s B team travelled to Grantham for their second match in the Aegon league, and yet again the weather controlled the match.

The tennis started in brilliant sunshine and the matches were finely balanced.

A torrential downpour broke the impetus and the team of William Bero, James Colam, Harry Foster and Harry Baldry went 1-3 down after the singles.

Some excellent tennis in the doubles only translated in to one rubber for the Boston team and a final 2-4 result for the away side.

Earlier fixtures in the Aegon Team Tennis competitions, from the previous weekend, saw Boston men’s second team in Division One of the county league play Grantham.

The team of Lewis Fisher, Calum McCaig, James Newton and Courtney George-Jones missed out 2-4.

Also in Division One, the men’s third team – Dan Bambridge, Richard Longworth, James Newton and Carl Robinson, lost 2-4 to Bourne. Boston ladies, in the East Midlands Regional League of the Aegon Team Tennis, played David Lloyd Burton Waters.

Danielle Frankish, Emily Hawkesworth, Ashleigh Frankish and Joan Beale put up a good effort but were outplayed on this occasion.
