Tennis teams in good form for winter matches

With the half-way point reached for our winter league season both our senior teams at Fry’s Tennis Club have had important December matches. 

Fry I had a tough start to the month with an away match to top-of-the-table Knowle II. 

Recent history between the teams suggested it would be a close match and this was to be no exception.  With both teams producing their best tennis the four matches played were split two apiece. 

Unfortunately with the match level, thanks to their superior games difference the bonus point was awarded to Knowle who took the overall match 6-4. 

Despite their disappointment Fry I took their good form into their next match against Clifton, this time recording a dominant 8-2 win.  The win means Fry I are in second place in division 2B although third place Kings have a game in hand.

Fry II’s only match in December was against Thornbury II.  With several players missing through injury, expectations were limited. 

However, thanks to some determined performances in tough conditions Fry's outclassed their opponents to ease to a 10-0 win. 

They finish the year in second place in division 4D although as with the first team the teams above and below them do have a game in hand.  Overall it’s been a good first half to the season for both Fry teams and we will look forward to our next matches in the new year.
