Penton Tennis Club celebrate Sarum League promotion
8:50am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in Sport
In a neck-and-neck finish to the Summer Sarum Tennis League, Penton A once again had to play their best in a home match against chasing Victoria Park, who were also vying for promotion to Division 2. The first mixed pair, Peter Henderson and Penny Borovikov, won both their sets for without undue difficulty, however, new pairing Paul Milford and Nicky Hooper struggled to find their form and were soundly beaten in both sets, leaving a score of two sets all at half-time. The men’s doubles saw Henderson and Milford both playing well, and they scooped a win of two sets of long and exciting rallies but the ladies were unable to match that performance against a dynamic pair from Victoria Park, and lost both their sets. The drawn score of 4-4 meant that each team was awarded one point, which resulted in Penton A staying two points ahead of Victoria Park, thereby snatching the promotion to Division 2 by a close margin, to the delight of team captain Glyn Jones.
