Ladies Winter County Cup Report

After a year away from Winter County Cup due to Covid, it was great to be back!

On Friday we played against Devon, captained by an ex H&W youth county player, Emily Rushen. Winter debuts for both Josie and Latesha saw them both win their first singles, along with wins also for Katy, Paulina and Imogen, giving us the victory before the doubles.

Lauren and Beth featured in the doubles, the end result being a 7-2 win.

Saturday saw another freezing start with the heating being broken across the whole weekend in the tennis centre. The H&W girls however we’re on fire against North of Scotland with a 4-2 lead after the singles winning rubbers 3 to 6.

A nervous start to the doubles made for a tense finish, but the girls flew through their respective matches and finished the match with a 6-3 victory!

Sunday become the battle for promotion! Home side Durham and Cleveland against a confident and thriving H&W.

Similar to Saturday, H&W made a flying start with their singles ending with another 4-2 lead before the doubles! A special mention to Joanna, who had battled hard at Number 1 all weekend against some very tough players.

The first doubles pair to take to the court was Katy and Latesha, with a chance to secure promotion! They played some incredible tennis and got us over the line!!
