Tennis club springs into triumphant action

Thursday, 1st May 2014.

The Halstead & Braintree League summer tennis season kicked off last week with Haverhill Men's A team welcoming Castle Hedingham A team for the first match of the season.

In what is usually a very close match, Haverhill managed to start the season in style with a well-deserved 7-2 victory.

The match looked to be turning into another tight affair until the key moment of the match when, at two matches all, James Booth and Josh Dashwood refused to be beaten as from 5-3 down they saved 15 match points to pull through and win in a tie-break.

With the comeback complete Haverhill stepped up a gear winning the rest of the night's matches with the established doubles pairing of Adam Fowle and Gratzz Senn delivering three out of three sets.

Special mention goes to debutant Brenton Mattheus, partnering Rob Jeffs, who rounded off the night's proceedings with a hard-fought win.

Team: James Booth/Josh Dashwood(c) - W 6-1/W 6-2/W 7-6; Adam Fowle/Grattz Senn - W 6-3/W 6-2/W 7-6; Brenton Mattheus/Rob Jeffs - L 6-3/L 6-3/W 6-2.
