Boston Tennis Club’s Men’s Aegon team put up a brave fight against Carisbrooke - currently the top team in the Aegon East Midlands League table.

The Boston team already had a win behind them. However this was predictably a tough encounter for Dominic Beesley, Lewis Fisher, Henry Beesley and Sam Kemp.

But after the singles round Boston stood even with all to play for in the doubles.

These went the way of Carisbrooke to give the Leicestershire team a 4-2 win, but overall this was a good effort from Boston Tennis Club.

With one win and one loss the Boston team stand mid-table.

The Boston Ladies’ A team, competing in the Aegon Team Tennis county level, had a convincing 6-0 win over Tennis Buddies.

The team of Emma Mastin, Victoria Needham, Ashleigh Frankish and Jane Hindmarch played well to gain full credits.

The Boston Ladies’ B team played Woodhall Spa in the Aegon Team Tennis and had a very close match that they lost out to the opposition in the tie-break shoot out.

The team of Sue Beesley, Charlotte Priestley, Joan Beale and Rachel Gedney were even after the singles and doubles, so they were very unlucky to be on the down side of the 6-7 result.

The Boston under 16 boys had a 6-0 win over Grantham this weekend.

The team of David Cheer, Sam Felipes, Zach McDonnell-Woods and Toby McDonnell-Woods are unbeaten after three matches.

The under 16 boys had plenty of tennis over the Bank Holiday weekend as all four from the team that played Grantham on the Sunday had played a Slazenger Lincolnshire Doubles League match on Saturday as Boston Men’s Second team took on the Thirds in a division two encounter.

The result was 7-2 to the Second team of James Newton, Sam Felipes, Dan Bambridge, Anthony Hulley, Geoff Short and Owen Jary, while David Cheer, Zach McDonnell-Woods, Richard Woods, Sam Khan, Toby McDonnell-Woods and Matthew Gedney turned out for the Thirds.

Boston Men’s Fourth team has also played the first match of their season against Tealby in the division 3A of the Slazenger Lincolnshire Doubles League.

In a match involving five third-set tie-breaks and six regular tie-breaks, the result was a pleasing 5-4 for Boston’s Chris Cook, John Gibson, Ryan Frankish, Richard Tupper, Richard Hart and Fred Calvert.
