With Andy Murray claiming his second Wimbledon title and on course to defend his Olympic title, it’s time to celebrate success for our teams, sponsored by Calthorpe Estates here at Edgbaston Priory Club.
We continue to enjoy success at regional, national and elite level in tennis, with 12 Members representing Great Britain. Earlier in the year, our men’s and ladies’ teams won:
- Helen Cole Trophy
- Winter League
- Mixed League
The men’s first team qualified for the National Premier League finals, losing out in the semi- finals. Our ladies’ national team won the Midlands Premier League and will play in the National Finals in September at Bournemouth.
Many of our teams are still in action over the summer competing for titles and promotions and ten players represented Warwickshire at County Week.
Successes so far include:
- Ladies first team won the Birmingham League Division 1
- Ladies second team won Division 2 and are promoted as champions
The men’s first team are in with the chance of winning the Birmingham league and the Men’s second team, having achieved back to back promotions are in with the chance of being Division 2 Champions.
