Ladies Team Tennis Success!


Four players from Penzance Tennis Club travelled to Bath last Sunday to compete in the AEGON Ladies Regional Team Tennis event held at Bath Tennis Club. Having left Cornwall early in the morning the Penzance team duly arrived at the beautifully located Bath Club for 12 noon to play four singles matches. In the searing Spring heat all four Penzance players won their singles in straight sets. In the two doubles matches that followed the singles the Cornish contingent did just as well, again winning in straight sets. Not having lost a set all afternoon the Penzance team left Bath victorious with an amazing score of 12-0.

Team captain and driver for the day Helena Luke was delighted, particularly as the team had lost the first match of this season’s AEGON Regional Ladies competition versus Knowle at home. This away win was a great achievement. The next AEGON Regional Ladies match will take place at East Dorset (Bournemouth) on 21 st May, followed by a home match versus Taunton on 4 th June.
