WGTC scores first win of the season

Narrowly beating hosts Norbury Park…

Woodfield Grove Tennis Club scored its first win of the league stage in the 2019 Millennium Cup defeating hosts Norbury Park LTC, 5-4, on Sunday 2 June.

It was the last tie of the season, pitching the two ‘lucky losers’ languishing at the foot of the leaderboard.

“It was great fun,” said Norbury’s captain, Lisa Patient.

Fun is a cornerstone of Millennium Cup play, as the competition provides players new to match play competitive experience in a friendly environment.

Woodfield’s win was helped in part to Norbury being unable to field a girl under 16, but the rest of rubbers were closely contested.
