THE LEAGUE'S PRESS OFFICER'S REPORT (No.10)

Frinton B have given themselves a good chance of gaining promotion from Division Two of the Stringers World Colchester and District Tennis league. A 9-0 defeat of the Officer's Club C followed by a 6-3 win away at Wivenhoe B, which ended any chance they had of promotion, has put them in pole position. Division Three is very tight but Lexden Hill's 5-4 victory over West Mersea keeps them top. David Lloyd A have dominated Division Four but Spring Lane C's Will Brown and Gus Pattinson won a tie break in their sides 8-1 defeat to claim the only set that David Lloyd A have dropped.

Frinton A lead the Ladies Premier Division with only the match against closest rivals, The Essex A left to play. With the Essex gaining maximum points against Lexden Rackets and Fitness Club B Frinton needed to beat Lexden Rackets and Fitness Club A by as many points as possible but a 5 1/2 - 3 1/2 victory means their lead is only 1 1/2 points going into the final match. The Essex B finished any hope Dedham A had of promotion to the Premier Division when they beat them 6-3. The Essex C moved top of Division Two with an 8-1 victory over Spring Lane A and in Division Three Lexden Rackets and Fitness Club C moved to within a point of The Essex D after beating The Officer's Club B, 8-1.

The Essex A have won the Mixed Premier Division for the fourteenth consecutive season but were pushed all the way by Frinton A until defeating them 6-3 to end their hopes.
