String when you're winning

Tennis stringer Jackie Vaughan regularly bails out members at Bewdley Tennis Club but it is not just her local club that benefits from her skills.

All major professional tennis tournaments must provide a stringer to ensure that players' rackets, the main tools of their trade, are in perfect condition.

With a wealth of experience from nearly 20 years in the highly-skilled role, Jackie has worked closely with many players who have since become worldwide stars - and she enjoys her involvement with the sport more than ever.

Ahead of the recent Pro-Series event at The Shrewsbury Club, Jackie was interviewed about life on tour as an official Babolat stringer.

Wollaston Tennis Club

WOLLASTON Lawn Tennis Club (WLTC) have achieved more impressive success for both its men's and women's teams in their Winter campaigns.

The club, which has seven of its teams competing in the Hereford and Worcester Winter Leagues, has seen four of them winning promotion to compete at the next level, with one of the teams winning it's league outright

WLTC Men's A and B teams were both paired in league division 7. This proved to be a very tight affair between Pershore B and the 2 Wollaston teams. The season ran nip and tick all the way through with the 2 Wollaston teams winning their last matches by 10 to 0 to finish in the top 2 spots. The Mens A team finished on 50 points, 2 points ahead of the Mens B team who finishing locked on 48 points with Pershore but securing in 2nd place with more matches won. It doesn't get any closer.

WLTC Mens C team also won promotion after finishing in 2nd place in division 9, just 2 points ahead of Worcester Mens G team with the top 2 in the division securing promotion. The team lost only once,  with defeat at Worcester in December, but than ran unbeaten for the remainder of the season securing promotion with a hard fought draw against David Lloyd Worcester. 

Wollaston Ladies were also looking for Winter success, this time it was the WLTC Ladies B team. They suffered just one defeat to leagues winners David Lloyd Bromsgrove, and then won all their remaining fixtures to secure 2nd place in division 7 on 40 points. This was the same point score as the league winners, and comfortably 6 points ahead of 3rd place.

Men's captain Richard Davies said “This is a fantastic result for both ladies and mens teams and shows  what team spirit and enthusiasm can do. Well done everyone. We are looking to take this success forward into the Summer League Season”.

JP Indoor Tennis League

Big congratulations to The Dumbstruck Unicorns for winning The JP Indoor Mixed league, staged at Manor Park.

After big money moves for Jilly Witcomb & Emma Bowen in pre-season, who were added to last year’s team, they went through the season unbeaten.

The other team members were Ali Kirkwood, Hannah Griffiths, Ben Shaw, Rory Guilding, John Clarke, Charlie & Geoff Titmuss, captained by Chris ‘Pep’ Barr-Hamilton.

There were lots of tough matches along the way, but they snuck through on numerous occasions. The local derby against JP Specials sticks in the memory as was quite a feisty affair!!

The JP Indoor League is a great competition, you never get wet, finishes on time and the tennis matches are played in a competitive, but fun manner!

Dumstruck unicorns

Well done to the mighty unicorns!!

In the Ladies League The Wild Cards took the top spot winning 8 of their 9 matches and Spritzers came second with equal number of wins as Walkers Wonders but winning 2 more rubbers.

She Rallies comes to Herefordshire & Worcestershire

The Lawn Tennis Association has launched ‘She Rallies’, championed by Judy Murray, in a bid to get more girls playing and more women coaching tennis.

She Rallies has been created to strengthen and grow the female workforce with the ultimate goal of attracting and retaining more women and girls in tennis.

Our Herefordshire & Worcestershire She Rallies Ambassador is Tina Manning and as ambassadors we will be providing FREE TRAINING AND EQUIPMENT to women from both tennis and non-tennis backgrounds within our regions and will empower them to give more girls the opportunity to play tennis locally.

She Rallies

The courses are for female only 16+. No prior tennis ability or qualification is required. It's not just restricted to adults - teenagers can be trained to deliver sessions to the younger groups. The sessions you could run afterwards can take place at any venue (doesn't have to be a tennis club) and there is also some funding available to cover facility hire and for further support from me to help set up an event.
 
Following the course, each person who decides to run their own course/s will receive an amazing kit bag worth over £200 containing rackets, balls, cones etc - everything you need to run the sessions now and in the future.

There will be 2 FREE training sessions running in Worcester over the next few months with a further course planned for Hereford in June.
