With the dust settling on another season, Wistow’s ladies doubles team had plenty to celebrate at the end of the 2019 season.
The team just missed out on promotion to the 1st division by one point, finishing third in division 2 of the Fulford Ladies Invitation Tennis League. The regular pairings of Ali Wortley & Rachael Huggins, Sue Hudson & Sarah Huggins and Lisa Hunter & Sheena Oddy were too strong for most of the competition, all finishing near the top of the stats table. A massive thanks goes to the full team of Debbie Crampton, Helen Carbutt, Janet Holmes and Debbie Cranford who turned in superb performances when called upon.
Wistow’s mixed team also had a strong season, finishing third in division 8 of the York Mixed Tennis league. Finishing just behind runners-up Riccall, and making up for a slow start by winning 7 of the final 8 matches. With a few more games here and there (and one very contentious decision!) it would have been a very different story in 2019.
With some eye catching performances from all our players, we’d like to thank everyone who played for Wistow this season: Jill Marsden, Dave Hearn, Julie O’Neil, Pam Huggins, Nick Clemishaw, Henry, Brian and Alison Hackwell and Phil Bywater. Wistow will play again in division 8, push for promotion in next year’s season.
