Pershore take on Wimbledon

In April, the Ladies over 50’s team entered in the National Inter-Club Tournament. On Saturday 22nd Sept, the Ladies won their quarterfinal match 3-1 against 45 club, Surrey to win a match away against The Wimbledon Club in the semi-finals.

This season, the Ladies team - consisting of Sarah McCormick, Beverley Morris, Jan Mason, Emma Bowen and Jackie Burton - have beaten Knowle & Dorridge, East Gloucestershire, Warwick Boat Club and the 45 club for a converted spot in the National semi-finals. The winner of the match will go through to the National Finals in Birmingham on 15th November.

The Ladies all represent Hereford and Worcester at County level and entered the competition to get more match practice together - and it looks like it’s paying off!

Captain and Chair, Sarah McCormick said:

“We weren’t expecting to beat such a large club, 600 members from all around the country. They didn’t know where Pershore was, or even Worcestershire, so the win was extra special. The semi-final against The Wimbledon Club will be a tough task, with former British number 1 Clare Wood on the team, but we’re definitely up for the challenge!”

Please join us in wishing the ladies the very best against their rivals at Wimbledon.

CFS 2018 County Closed Championships

We hope that you like the post tournament video!

 

Jamie Marks and Kate Horsburgh were crowned CFS H&W County Closed singles champions after an exciting week’s tennis at Malvern’s Manor Park, that attracted 173 players.

The week-long tournament saw singles and doubles action in all age groups from under eights through to the seniors.
Malvern-based coach Jamie retained his county singles title by defeating Oliver Nunn 6-2,6-3.

However, Oliver shrugged off that disappointment to team up with Mike Langston to win the men’s doubles beating Adam Dudek and Jack Smith 7-6, 6-3.

In the women’s singles Kate Horsburgh was in fine form to beat Imogen Sinclair 6-1, 6-2 but tables were turned between the pair in the under 18s section when Imogen gained revenge defeating Katie 7-6, 2-6, 10-8.

The pair then joined forces to lift the women’s doubles crown proving too strong for Hannah Gibbons and Lucy Hawkes.
In the boys under 18s Billy Wright overcame Matthew Sime 6-4, 6-2.

Ian King, president of the H&W LTA, commented: "It was a fantastic week reflecting the talented tennis players we have in Hereford and Worcester at all age groups.

"As always we would like to thank Manor Park for hosting the tournament and make special mention to sponsors Cane Furniture Studio (CFS) and Head for their support of the event."
