Late Summer League. Three teams participated in the late Summer League Mixed Doubles. The first team finished in the middle of their league. The second and third teams both gained valuable experience, but not many points.
Winter League. With the winter league at the half way stage we know break for the Christmas Holidays. A big thank you to everyone who has volunteered, been cajoled into and coerced into playing! A big thank you to those who have helped with emailing round to plug gaps in teams, and to Gill for providing so much cake!!
Winter League Teams I and II
The firsts have had a very successful start to the winter league season, winning 3 of their 5 fixtures 10-0 and only losing one match 4-6. This leaves them 24 points clear at the top of the table with eyes fixed firmly on promotion.
The seconds have been fighting hard in a tough division level with the firsts. With 3 big wins and 3 big losses they are mid table and need to have a solid end to the season post-Christmas.
Winter Seniors Teams I, II, and III
With the standard of tennis very high in Division 2 the Vets firsts have had a real fight on their hands to pick up points. To their credit at the half way stage they are mid table and will need to hit the ground running in January.
Thornbury Vets have entered more teams than any other club into the leagues this year and this has allowed us to have a diverse range of players gaining useful league experience. With the seconds and thirds in the same division there have been some tense moments over the season so far the thirds will finish 2016 one place above the seconds. It will be exciting to see if the seconds can hit a run of form and finish above them at the end of the season.
