Tennis club team complete summer and winter double
Friday, 10th December 2010.
The Haverhill Tennis Club under 18s team of Abi Cartwright-Thomas, Lucy Hardwick and Rachel Jeffs have won the Halstead and District Winter League after earlier in the season wining the summer league.
Their first fixture against Forrester Park (Near Maldon) back in September was a glorious day with Abi and Rachel winning all five sets.
Lucy was in fine form for the two matches she played against Lavenham B and Wickham Bishops, winning all her singles matches, with Abi only losing one of the ten rubbers played.
On November 21, Haverhill played against a strong Braintree team but after a few three-set matches managed to win 4-1.
The final fixture was played last Sunday on a bitterly cold day against old rivals Lavenham.
Ruby and Daisy Hawkins representing Lavenham put up a great fight and Ruby had a match point against Abi but failed to put the overhead away losing 5-4, 4-0, (8-10 in the championship tie break).
Rachel Jeffs proved too strong for Daisy 4-1, 4-2 but lost to Ruby 4-0, 4-2 in a great game.
Abi beat Daisy 4-0, 4-1 in a one-sided game and then Abi and Rachel combined in the doubles to play the final match.
The Haverhill girls played some great tennis, wrapping the match up quite quickly, winning 4-0, 4-0 with the Lavenham girls' spirit dwindling.
