Success For The Ladies Second Team

The Ladies second team bounced back from an opening day loss at Wistow to record a comfortable win in their opening home fixture of the campaign on Saturday. Playing in the Fulford Ladies League Division Three and superbly led by captain Rachel Butterworth, the ladies produced some wonderful tennis to record an impressive 73-35 victory over visitors Rowntree Park.

Butterworth alongside playing partner Fiona Chantrey, amazingly conceded a mere 4 games all afternoon as they routed their opponents 32-4.

In a real team effort though second couple Helen Robinson and Debbie Vines were able to win two of their three rubbers with the third pair of Janine Smith and Marise Richfield building on last week’s form to record a win and a draw.

The team are back in action next Saturday morning May 7 with a 10am start when they will fancy their chances away at Knaresborough.

Well done girls and good luck for the remainder of the season.
