League tables

Hi bloggers.

The singles tournaments for reaching a climax and it is very close . In the champions league - it is James making the running , closely followed by Elliott T, but it is very tight for the bronze medal , Franky, Louis and Abigail all have a shout . In the premier league it looks like Franky gaining top spot , but it is so close for 2nd as dark horse Charlie has done brilliantly to get to 2nd at the moment , and Harrison leading the race for 3rd ., with William C Sam and Eliot A all in with a chance .
The championship is just as close, Katie leads the way but has played extra matches , and Sonny and Edward look like getting the top 2 spots , but it is so close between them , 3rd may go to Katie , Ben or even Toby . It is all to play for .

The juniors have a match this coming friday v Roundwood away .

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 .

Successful summer

Sproughton Tennis Club has had yet another very successful summer league campaign.
 
Well done to Mens 2, Mens 3 and Mixed 2 who all got promoted.
 
Ladies 1 and Mixed 1 did well to stay in their respective divisions which were both tough leagues.
 
Mens 1 were relegated from a very hard Division 1 but avoided finishing bottom.
 
Well done to all players, especially those who helped out when needed.
 
Enjoy your winter tennis!
