Surry tennis season up and running
THE Surry District Tennis Association’s 2019-20 season began on Saturday and in a new-look A grade competition six teams clashed at three different venues, while Lawn Red had the bye.
In the tightest match up in the season opener Drumborg snuck away with a victory over Lawn Blue on the courts at Lawn, 3-40 to 3-34.
Lyndon Mibus and Jim McKenzie got the ball rolling early for Drumborg with a confident 8-2 opening set victory but Lawn Blue wasted no time striking back, with Verity McDonald teaming up with Molly Fisher in an 8-6 win.
McDonald carried this momentum into the third set, combining with Craig Keenan for an 8-6 win, however Caitlin McKenzie carried Drumborg home for a win in a match-defining fourth (8-3) and fifth set (8-5) performance.
Verity and Sam McDonald then closed out the game with an 8-4 set win.
