Congratulations to our Cambs County Tennis Men's Over 55s team for lifting the trophy and our Ladies 40s team R/U at the Midlands County Veterans Winter Leagues held at Corby Indoor Tennis Centre, Corby.
Ashley Martin, Cambs 55s Men's County Tennis team Captain, reports that he is very pleased to say that Cambridgeshire has won the 2019/20 Men's Over 55s Midlands Veterans Winter League held during the Winter weekends at Corby Indoor Centre, Corby. We played our final match on Saturday and beat Leicestershire 6-2. It came down to 'winner takes all' as both Cambridgeshire and Leicestershire went into the match with a record of played five, won five against, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Warwickshire all 7-1, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire 6-1, Bedfordshire 5-3.
It is the first time that Cambridgeshire has won this League in its 27-year history. The county has its name on the 55s trophy at last! The people who played in all the matches were: Ashley Martin (captain), Alan Jordan, Simon Elliott, Chris Cope, Julian Attfield, Nick Balon, Andy Rice and Scott Martin. The attached photo is of the 55s Men's team who played the final match, which was taken with the trophy at Corby Indoor Tennis Centre (left to right) Chris Cope, Ashley Martin (Capt), Scott Martin and Alan Jordan.
Cambs County 40 ladies Team (Captain, Christine Sprowell) also play in the Midlands County Tennis Seniors Leagues at the Corby Indoor Tennis Centre, in the Ladies 40s League. They were, also in the same position as the Men's team, when they played their final match against Lincolnshire, where both teams had won all their matches and were playing 'winner takes all' but sadly they lost. They were hoping to get a hat-trick as they had won it the last 2 years.
