Colchester Officers' Club A have started their Stringers World Colchester and District Tennis League Men's Premier Division season with a convincing 8-1 victory against Dedham A. In Division One, Lexden Hill A pushed unbeaten league leaders, Wivenhoe A, close but went down 5-4. Also in Division One, a strong Lexden Rackets and Fitness Club A defeated Officers' Club B, 9-0. Dedham B were victorious against a struggling Little Clacton in Division Two and Kirby A remain unbeaten after defeating Frinton B 6-3. Wivenhoe B made it four wins out of four in Division Three with a hard fought 5-4 win against second-placed Kirby B. This match, played in difficult conditions, saw a great performance from Wivenhoe's third pair, Len Jarman and Luis Vasconcelos, who won all their three sets.

In the Ladies Premier Division, Lexden Hill have responded to a poor start by winning their next two matches, 8-1 against Lexden R & F Club A and 9-0 against the Essex B. However, the Essex A are the unbeaten leaders following a 9-0 defeat of Frinton A. Similarly, in Division One, Lexden R & F Club B are undefeated after four matches, the latest a 9-0 victory against Frinton B. The Essex D were beaten 6-3 at home by Wivenhoe in Division Three. Dedham B managed their first victory of the season when winning 5-4 against the previously unbeaten Essex E. Caroline Weston and Sam Harty starred for Dedham and were undefeated on the night. Spring Lane C remain top of Division Five despite losing 6-3 to the Officers' Club C.

In Division Two of the Mixed league, Frinton B inflicted a first defeat on Dedham B and Lexden R & F Club B won 7-2 against the Essex C. Danny Burridge and Zoe Knight won all three sets for Spring Lane B but they could not prevent their side from going down 5-4 in their Division Three top of the table clash with the Officers' Club B. However, they still remain top in a close fought league.



The Colchester & District Tennis League is very pleased to announce that the League will be sponsored by Mr Bob Smith of 'Stringers World' in Brantham. He is probably well known to many of you but for those who would like further information about 'Stringers World' please
