Pre season Report

This coming weekend sees the start of the ladies tennis season.

Forty Eight teams will compete across six divisions in the Fulford Ladies Invitation League, again sponsored by Paul Garland Ltd.

York’s first team will be looking to defend their division 1 title for a third successive year, but will likely face challenges from various teams including Dunnington, Castlegarth and Poppleton.

Bubwith enter a second team into the league for the first time this season; they will hope to emulate their first team, who last year gained promotion from division 6 and were the only team in the league to win all of their matches.

Rufforth will play in division 2 after winning successive promotions in the last two years,  whilst Riccall and Poppleton 2 bounce straight back into division 3 after both being relegated the previous season.

Sutton upon Derwent will hope to challenge for promotion from division 4 after just missing out on games difference last year.

Wilberfoss will aim to go one better this term after finishing in third place in division 6 for the last two seasons.

The IT Sports and IT Sports Too tournaments will be hosted by York and Copmanthorpe this year on the weekend of 12th  / 13th  September, whilst Poppleton will again run the Beryl Bean Tournament later that month.
