Great to be back underway in Gravesend in 2017, with some good competitive tennis on display. This is still a young league and we'd love to see numbers grow, particularly with summer now here so please do continue to spread the word if you can. See you next time!

Group Summary:

It was third time lucky for Terry, who after finishing second in the last two rounds makes the move to the top of the table thanks to four hard fought wins - well played Terry. Gavin had a good debut emerging victorious from half of his matches to clinch the silver.
