Collapse AllGravesend Singles - Round 2 | Thursday 13 October 2016 to Wednesday 7 December 2016 (Midpoint: Wednesday 9 November 2016)

A quiet second round for the Gravesend Tennis League but nevertheless it was a great effort from everyone to get nearly all the available matches played. Please do continue to help spread the word - we'd love to see the league grow and provide more matches and greater competition!

Group Summary:

Despite being a small group particularly after Paul's withdrawal, it was fantastic to see such competitive tennis played. Terry may have held off Lee in their marathon head to head encounter but the set that Lee won in that match meant he was unable to do so in the standings as Lee claimed top spot - well played both!

  1. Lee Wendon 10.2 [W3, L1] 7 WINNER
  2. Terry Mccarthy [W3] 6 RUNNER UP
  3. Roy Dinnis 9.1 [W1, L2] 2

Player Comments:

  • "The score did not do justice to a well contested match which began with Chris taking a clear lead and with the majority of games in the second set going to deuce. There were many excellent rallies. It was only the serving which made a difference in the end. "  -- Roy
