Superb opening round for the East Birmingham (now the Billesley) Tennis League! Thank you everyone for the leap of faith and for getting stuck in - we had a great turn out and a number of competitive matches. Congratulations to the new group champions Chris and Oliver, and we hope to see you all in the next round!
Chris demonstrates how all-important those bonus points can be, as he leap-frogs Ed with their help to take the gold with just a 1 point lead! Congratulations Chris - and commiserations Ed.
