Wisbech Tennis Club’s ladies B team in the Huntingdon and Peterborough League had two defeats in away matches.

First up was Stamford 6-2. Although the ladies went down fighting they lost two tie breakers, which could have given them a draw. Next was a very spirited Chatteris team and Wisbech suffered a whitewash of 8-0.

Team against Stamford: M Mee, S Pitcher, K Hall and S Beel. Against Chatteris: S Tolliday, M Mee, S Pitcher and J Goodley.

Some junior members of the club also compete at Hunstanton and gained valuable experience, playing against nationwide players.

In the Mens Restricted Doubles a senior member of the club, D. Layton-Hannam, and his partner lifted the trophy. Other senior members from the club had been knocked out of their events at various hurdles of the annual tournament.
