Unbeaten Oakham Tennis Club Ladies First team have won promotion.

The women’s team have now completed their season having won all the matches played and will be promoted to the upper echelons of Leicestershire League tennis – Division Two – next year.

Captain Debbie Powell said she is delighted with the result and is looking forward to ‘tougher’ tennis next year.

She and Jane Wood, Jane Gilmore and Laura Reekie, and Carolyn Davies and Ana Weber, played most of the matches this season with Michelle Greening and Jackie Staines coming in when required. Powell said it is probably the fact theywere able to keep to as regular pairings as they did that they have been so successful.
