Sproughton v St Johns

Hi bloggers

Last sunday the under 11's played St Johns in the return fixture , starting in drizzle our team consisting of Elliott and Franky won the first set 7-6 , after a momentous match winning a hard fought tie-break , meanwhile Louis and Harrison were losing heavily , so the half-time score was 1-1 . then the reverse fixtures and Elliott and Franky lost while Harrison and Franky played superbly to clinch the set and claiming a draw , with a wholehearted display , and a greatly improved performance . So a result of 2-2 .

The over 11's started brightly with another tie-break win with Tyler and James winning a marathon tie-break 10-8 , meanwhile Elliott playing in his 3rd match was winning with Tito , so Sproughton were 2-0 up at half-time , then the drizzle started again and Tyler and James were getting turned over 1-6 but Tito and Elliott excelling themselves raced into a 5-0 lead , but with the drizzle getting worse the lead diminished into 5-3 , then we won the final game to claim out first win against St Johns 5 sets to 3 in total .

Well done to all the players involved esp Elliott who played both matches and still had juice left at the end !

Hi Bloggers

Winter update - the WL teams are nearing the end of the campaign and have had mixed results . In the mens div1 Ashley has done extremely well to finish around the 3rd place mark with an array of partners after the unfortunate injury of John . Tamas and Graham finish with 12 points and are hoping to retain their position in div1 . Howard/Gary/Nigel/Stevie have been relegated from div 3 , but Kevin/Colin have won promotion from div 4 . Ryland/Andre/Chris have finished mid-table in div 5 . Whilst in the ladies our two teams both in the top division have done well , and Joan/Jill in the top 3 .

Sproughton tennis blog Oct

Hi Bloggers .

Lots of happenings at Sproughton . The juniors had a match v St Johns , and although the youngsters went down 0-4 , they improved greatly , and lost a host of game tie-break points , if they had of won half they would have picked up a few sets . Well done to Harrison and Franky , but especially well done to Louis and Sam who made their debuts and improved greatly .
Our older group won their match 4-0 , but like the juniors , the score was closer than it sounds .
3 of our juniors competed in the Woodbridge tournament , Oliver doing well , Harrison finishing 4th , and Elliott winning his competition and a nice medal .Well done all .

Autumn blog

Hi Sproughton bloggers .

The junior autumn leagues have started with the youngs being very close . William M looks the favourite in the Premier league ,with 2 wins from his opening matches , but a strong challenge from Harrison and Louis looks likely .
In the Championship , Oliver has completed his matches and has 4 wins and a draw , but Bethany M has started well, and also Elliott , there is a lot to play for .

The olds 11-18 years old , have also started and Tyler and Edward have won their opening match , Joe leads win 2 wins , but it is too close to call at the moment .

Anyone interested in joining please contact the club , as there are spaces especially in the 11-18 year old group .
