Collapse AllNorth Devon Singles - Round 6 | Thursday 21 September 2017 to Sunday 17 December 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 15 November 2017)

It was great to welcome 4 new players to North Devon Tennis League this time round, and there were some excellent matches across the board, including tough 2 setters and a 3 set battle! Nearly two thirds of all possible matches were played and lots of midway bonus points were claimed, so thanks to you all for your engagement with the league and we hope to see you back next time!

Group Summary:

Congratulations to Bruce for topping Group 1 on his debut, winning an impressive 7 matches in the process and finishing 2 points clear of runner up John Norman. John N had a strong round too, scheduling all 8 of his matches and winning 6, but he just came up short in a tough 2 setter against John Griffiths. The group's only 3 set match was between John N and Adam, but there was some good tennis all round!
