As the league season comes to an end, the club can look back on a successful summer.
In the Bradford Parks League, with just two fixtures to play, the ladies team could still top the first division, with second place, at least, being in the bag. Individually, Cathy Holmes and Chloe Robinson are both among the top ranked players in the league.
The men’s team has also had a successful season and will finish third in Division Three with Tom Horsfall ranked fourth highest player in the division.
In the Wharfedale League, the A team finished third in Division One, behind the much larger clubs of Ilkey and Heaton. The B team, promoted to Division Two last year, avoided immediate relegation thanks largely to an end of season victory over table-topping Ilkley B.
Meanwhile the C team, despite losing some of their stronger players from last season to the A and B teams, managed to avoid bottom spot in Division Three with three wins and a draw from the 18 fixtures.
The club is now looking to encourage new members to join and to engage league players over the winter with Sunday morning social play at the club (from 10am – 1pm) on a turn up and play basis.
And of course there is always the popular MonFri sessions and the winter tennis at Giggleswick School.
So as autumn approaches time to serve up some more tennis.
