January heralds not only a new year but also a new month in the Bombay Brasserie Singles Leagues at Boston Tennis Club.

Michal Chmielik still maintains his lead at the top of the main singles league leaderboard.

However, he faces some tough opposition from Zach McDonnell-Woods, who trails by only one point, and Jeremy George-Jones, only four points behind.

In the Bombay Brasserie Winter Singles Day League, Jeremy George-Jones has begun 2015 at the top of the leaderboard, with Ladi Hruban in second place.

This month Jeremy George-Jones, Richard Walker, Ladi Hruban and John Gibson - who is a new entrant in the league - are all competitors in the same division.

In the second groups, Richard Tupper, James Waterfall, Sue Burnett and Jim Mackin have to compete in one group and, in the other, Phil Cosgriff, Geoff Presland, Chris Mepham and Jenny McGarel will play one another.

On the leaderboard for games won outside of the top divisions, Phillippe Servonat leads the way with 50 games, closely followed by Paul Smith with 49 and James Waterfall and Jenny McGarel with 46 games apiece.

Matches resumed in the Lincolnshire Slazenger Veterans League at the weekend.

There were division one matches for both Boston’s Ladies’ First and Men’s Second teams.

The Boston Ladies played Bourne in a gusty away match.

The team of Rachel Gedney, Linda Barrow, Rachel Atkinson and Mary Smura lost out 2-6 in a match that was closer than suggested by the score.

The Boston Men’s Second team also lost out, going down 3-5 to Grantham, with two first round tie-breaks won by Grantham in a very close contest.

The team was Richard Tupper, Richard Hart, Ladi Hruban and Jeremy George-Jones.
