Collapse AllHalton Singles - Round 1 | Thursday 6 October 2016 to Wednesday 30 November 2016 (Midpoint: Wednesday 2 November 2016)

Thank you all for taking part in this opening round of the Halton Tennis League. You are the pioneers and we are sure, from this small acorn a great league will grow! See you in a tennis-packed new year.

Group Summary:

We're making a start in Halton so this was an atypically small group and indeed only two matches were played! Phil and Michael tie on points after both winning one match but it is Phil who claims the league's first top spot after his head to head win over Michael. A shame that not all players made it out of the starting blocks and do let us know if you are having problems setting matches up and getting them played.

Final Rankings:

  1. Phil Hor [W1] 2 WINNER
  2. Michael Gates [W1, L1] 2 RUNNER UP
  3. Craig Goulding [L1]
  4. Joe Higgins 10.2

Match Results:

Match of the Group:

Michael Gates bt Craig Goulding (Oct 31) 6-3, 7-5
