Wetherby First Team Crowned HDTL Division 2 Champions

Wetherby followed up last weeks promotion by clinching the title following a cosy home win against a Starbeck team that only sent two pairs. It means the club can’t be caught at the summit and the pre season favourites justified that tag following a tremendous season of tennis.

Steve Plant made a welcome return from lineman duties at Wimbledon to form a strong partnership with Yvonne Mannall and they contributed 31 points . Captain Lucy Wright paired with chairman Steve Jones and the pair were comfortable throughout accumulating another 31 whilst Roger Fawcus returned from holiday to team up with the ever reliable Rachel Hill and they achieved an eye catching 34 resulting in an overall 96-12 success.

Congratulations to Roger Fawcus, Rachel Hill, Yvonne Mannall, Lucy Wright, Steve Plant, Sue Jacklin, Helen Robinson and Steve Jones for this seasons efforts. Enjoy the bubbly!!

Wetherby have certainly earned the right to challenge themselves at the top table and although Division One is strong, they will feel capable of been competitive, especially with a deep squad strength other clubs often struggle to match.

Captain Lucy Wright called upon seventeen players this campaign and currently heads the statistics league, leading from the front.

Wetherby play bottom two sides, Harrogate Racquets and Thirsk,to finish the 2022 season and will be looking to add a couple of victories to ice the cake.
