Main Image

LEE ON THE SOLENT – The Lee-on-the-Solent ladies first team played their first Aegon Team Tennis Division 1 home opener of the season on Sunday beating Warsash Tennis Club 10-2 overall. 


This was a big win for the team as Warsash have just come down from regional. Chloe Efford for Lee was first off court cruising to a 6-1 6-0 win over Pauline Udal. It did not take long for Kelly Burge for Lee to wrap it up against Jo-Anne Downing winning 6-2 6-1. Andrea Jackson won for Lee due to Cathie Russell retiring because of a calf injury. An exciting and incredibly tight match leaving it at 6-7 (7-9), 6-3 and 4-2 in the championship tie-break. Rosie Harfield lost to a very good Isla Hignett for Warsash 6-0, 6-4 although Harfield put up a good fight in the second set. 


With one doubles already a walkover due to injury, it was left down to Burge and Efford to seal the deal. A comfortable 6-2, 6-1 win over Downing and Hignett despite awful weather conditions, a comfortable victory for the ladies. 

 
The ladies next match is Sunday 22nd April at Bassett Tennis Club. Hopefully the ladies can stick to winning ways.
