Ladies I home v Cullercoats II 17th July 2018

Lisa & Lyndsey      Jayne & Silvia    Claire & Susie

Cullercoats won by 10 sets to 7 ( 1 set incomplete ) and 74 games to 74

A tough loss to take for our ladies as they suffered a fourth loss on the spin against a very good Cullercoats team.

With Amy still suffering with the back injury which forced her off court in the last match capt. Jayne paired up with Silvia to great effect as they powered their way to 6 sets in fine fashion with the loss of only 10 games.

Susie & Claire took the other set against the away top couple and came close in all but 2 of the other 5 in a great effort.

Finally we come to Lisa & Lyndsey who were playing as number one pair but just couldn't get over the line for a set. They have been a model of consistency all season and they could play a lot worse and win 6 sets. All of the Cullercoats pairs saved their best tennis for the sets against Lisa & Lyndsey, getting everything back with interest, volleying brilliantly and finding an answer to whatever they tried. Having lost 2 tight tiebreaks and 2 very close sets of the 5 they completed our brave pair were understandably frustrated at the end of the night but i'm sure once they get back to knocking some of our men off court on a wed. night they will feel a whole lot better. 

A great effort all round ladies  - now go and win at David Lloyd next week
