Collapse AllShrewsbury Singles - Round 8 | Thursday 25 April 2019 to Wednesday 19 June 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 22 May 2019)

A much smaller group this time with just 5 players signed up, but 90% of matches (all but one!) played shows that everyone is still keen to play lots of tennis, and we did welcome two newcomers this round too!

Group Summary:

Good to see some familiar faces playing again at Shrewsbury. Congratulations to Peter, who stormed to victory, winning all his matches. Jack had to settle for runner-up position after a sensational round last time as winner, although it looks like Peter had a real fight with him in their head-to-head taking it to 3 close sets. Great to see so many matches played and in good spirits; it's still a relatively new league so keep up the good work everyone and spread the word!

  • "Good match with David, he had many game points but got unlucky in attempts to convert so the score line isn't really reflective of the match. Always a pleasure to play you David, all the best with the others."  -- Jack
