Winter County Cup
November 27, 2018
This weekend Middlesex played the final LTA county cup of the year.
Both teams were a great credit to Middlesex Tennis in the their own right, very ably led by Fran and Andy.
The women’s team went into the event looking to gain promotion into division one and achieved that goal with strong performances and wins against, Cambridgeshire, Warwickshire and Yorkshire.
It was really pleasing to see playing for the first time a number of younger players, including Camilla Gretschel and Scarlett Hutchinson and being so successful with an overall very young squad of players, some of whom will be eligible to play in the 18u County Cup next February. A great overall team achievement.
The men’s team had a difficult proposition following a defeat against East of Scotland (led by Colin Fleming), and after losing to Derbyshire, despite fighting back extremely well from 0 – 3 down. On the final day they produced a confident display against Nottinghamshire to secure their place in group 3b.
With both men’s and women’s team in group one Summer County Week it will be a great opportunity for Middlesex to challenge for top spots in div one and also an opportunity for younger players to shine.
