Promising start to winter season for Keynsham tennis teams

After mixed success in our summer league season, October saw the start of Fry’s winter league season.  Our first team got off to a fantastic start in their opening fixture, winning all their rubbers to record a comfortable 10-0 home win against a good Bristol 2 team in what promises to be a very strong Division IIB.

The second team also got off to an impressive start, winning their opening fixture 8-2 against Bishop Sutton III.  Unfortunately they were unable to match this performance in their second fixture, losing 8-2 away to a tough Cotham Park side in a match that was much closer than the score suggested and could easily have gone either way.  

With five matches being played in November, next month promises to be an important one for both teams. Fry’s Veterans’ team had their first match of the season which they knew would be a tough one as they were unexpectedly promoted from Division III to Division II! 

Some teams in the higher divisions had opted not to play this season so the gaps were automatically filled by lower ranked teams.  So, after a spirited tussle, Fry’s lost their match 2-8 but are hopeful that their next match will be more successful. 

The usual fighting spirit of Fry Tennis Club goes on! If you are interested in playing league tennis or would like to join us for social tennis at various times during the week, please contact Ann Smith on 0117 986 2845 for more information.
