In early September it was the Clabburn Trophy. Once again enjoyed by all. Kate Beaumont and Edward Blount beat Denise Ferriman and Tom Lockey.

Later in September a ladies doubles competition was organised giving Kate Beaumont and Lisa Murray a win over Jane Fuller and Helen Whittamore. 

The final tournament was a men’s doubles held in early October It was won by Paul Ashby and Chris Holmes who defeated Simon Maddock and Matt Heath.

Update on Ladies short format results

This is the first season of ladies playing in the short format league. We have had 3 matches but only 2 played as Mansfield had to concede as they could not get a team. We have had resounding wins 12-0   and 9-3 as we have entered this league at the bottom division so the standard is not high. This season will hopefully enable us to start climbing the division to get to a standard that is more challenging. The last 2 matches are not till Sept and Oct  so will update then. Many thanks to all who took part, pleased to be getting a team out considering the small number of ladies available.


After 1 loss and 1draw, ladies won the E Bridgford match playing to a result. Rain delayed the start and heavy showers continued throughout

but we all played on through the rain to get the match finished to watch Wimbledon mens final. So once again thanks to all and apologies for any spoilt hair doos.

Close match at Caunton

A very enjoyable match with close games left us with a 9 -9 draw.Since this was not our strongest team, we did well and thanks to all who played.

loss to start season for ladies

Enjoyable tennis but unfortunately resulting in a loss of 5 – 13 to Mapperley. It was a struggle to get 6 ladies and if any of these had stepped down we would have had to pull out so thank you to all. Angela and Helen Blount gained 2, Denise and Steph 2, Karen and Yvonne 1.

Mens 2nd – Division 2 Champions!

After a slightly disappointing 6-6 draw against Castle last weekend, our 2nd Mens team returned to form on Sunday with an 8-4 away win over Attenborough (on Astro-turf) to secure the Short Format 2nd Division title and gain promotion back to division 1. Everyone contributed, with top pair Ian Staples and Jon Banner taking all 4 sets for the loss of just 8 games in total and both 2nd pair Rick Drury and Nick Robinson and 3rd pair Gareth O’Leary and Adam Buckley taking 2 sets each.

Congratulations to all who played for the team this year and let’s hope for a longer stay in the top division this time.

Last ladies match of the season

Although we had a strong team we could not get the win which might have secured our stay in div 3. We lost 61/2 – 11 1/2 to Burton Joyce who have won all their matches and hope to go up.

Now with only I win throughout the season it looks like we will be demoted next year. On a positive note, we have a challenge for next season to get back up there!

Would like to thank all ladies who played throughout the season (whether willingly or not)….. Angela, Lindsay, Jane, Charlotte, Helen, Karen, Steph, Yvonne, Janet, Katie, Sarah, Jenny and myself.

Another loss for ladies in division 3

Enjoyable game played at Woodthorpe with a good standard of tennis, but unfortunately we could not get a win despite Lindsay and Angela gaining most points. 101/2  – 71/2.

Special thank you to Charlotte who played her 1st match since having baby Jacob.To be able to play she had to feed him immediately before and after the match, so very well done.

Now setting sights on a win for our last ladies match which hopefully will keep us in this division!
