Collapse AllTrafford Singles - Round 5 | Thursday 14 September 2017 to Wednesday 8 November 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 11 October 2017)

There was a clear winner in Trafford Tennis League this round, with Stephen running away with Group 1... although it could have been closer had more matches been played. Don't forget next time you can boost your points score by claiming bonus points if you schedule 3 matches before the midway point... so this is always worth doing! We hope to see you all back in the next round!

Group Summary:

It was as storming performance from Stephen to finish top of the group with a huge 12 point winning margin over runner up Simon, thanks to winning all 6 of his matches and not dropping a set. Simon was the only other player to win a match, in a generally low scoring group. Hopefully you can all get off the blocks quicker next time and earn the bonus midway points to get your campaigns off to a good start!

  1. Stephen Axford [W6] 14 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
