Round 2 of the Men's No 2 Summer Tennis Competition was played on Tuesday night which saw Graham Watt and Arnold Brown in fine form to win the round with 26 games. The two players had a great night's tennis which resulted in two sets finishing levelled at 4 games all. They won their other three sets 6/2, 6/2, 6/2. Well played, Graham and Arnold.
Two pairs finished the night, winning a total of 24 games each. They were David Mitton and Grant Fisher and Anthony Wilson and Pat Hazell. Both these pairs also played consistent and competitive tennis, resulting in close sets. David Mitton was a fill-in for Charles Harvey and he and Grant levelled two sets 4 all and won the other three sets 5/3, 6/2, 5/3. Anthony and Pat in their first set were on fire to win 7/1, then levelled the second set 4/4, won the next two sets 5/3, but went down 3/5 in a close battle against David and Grant.
Next best pair was Danny Edwards and John Walmsley who won 19 games for the round. Their sets were 2/6, 5/3, 4/4, 3/5, 5/3. Grahame Edwards and Mark Liebich battled away in their tennis to win a total of 15 games after four sets being very close. Sets were 3/5, 3/5, 3/5, 4/4, 2/6, a great result.
Two fill-ins made up the other pair taking part in Round 2. Matthew Clarke filled in for Andrew Bucknell while Tracy Walker filled in for Hugh Moffitt and the pair finished up winning 12 games.
It certainly was a great night for the men who will now play Round 3 next Tuesday, February 20, weather permitting. The Mixed Teams Summer Night Tennis commenced on Wednesday night and hopefully results of the first round will be published in a later edition of The Grenfell Record.
