The road stopped at Wimbledon for Pershore Ladies

The award-winning team at Pershore Tennis Centre were on the road to Wimbledon at the weekend – playing away in the semi-final of the National Inter-Club Tournament.

In April, the club entered a Ladies over 50’s team and won their quarterfinal match 3-1 against 45 club, Surrey in September, to win a match away against The Wimbledon Club in the semi-finals.

The Ladies all represent Hereford and Worcester at County level and entered the competition to get more match practice together.

Whilst the Ladies lost in the semi-final, Captain and Chair at Pershore Tennis Centre, Sarah McCormick said:

“The Wimbledon Club’s team consisted of players that regularly represent England and their 1st pair included Clare Wood, former British number 1 who reached a world ranking high of 56! It was a great experience and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves - even though we lost!"

Please join us in congratulating the ladies for their smashing journey on the road to Wimbledon!

12 Counties tennis

Overall some great tennis by all the players and some promising tennis ready for 18U County Cup in February. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be for the team this year but with so many close matches it could have easily gone in our favour. Well done to all the players and parents for such great support throughout the day and keeping spirits high even in loss.

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.
