Woodbridge Tennis Club’s teams have had an incredibly successful summer season in the Ipswich and District League. Five of the club’s teams have celebrated promotion this summer from their respective divisions:
– Ladies 2: Runners Up in Division 5 (captained by Stella Fitzgerald)
– Men’s 1: Runners Up in Division 4 (captained by Steve Anker)
– Men’s 2: Champions in Division 7 (captained by Gerard Travers)
– Men’s 3: Runners Up in Division 7 (captained by Alistair Bacon)
– Mixed 2: Champions in Division 6 (captained by Paul Rainer)
Particular congratulations must be extended to Gerard Travers’ invincible Men’s 2nd team (pictured above) who went the whole summer unbeaten and won an incredible 81% of all sets played – the highest of any team in any division.
Reflecting on the summer, Gerard explained, “The top tips I have learnt as captain are firstly, warming up with your team half an hour before the match to get everyone into the right mindset and off to a flying start, and secondly, don’t forget the insect repellent!”
Details of how to get involved in winter 2019/2020 floodlit tennis will be available shortly via email and on the Team Tennis page of the website.
