Shropshire tennis promotion

Shropshire’s over-65s ladies team have impressively clinched promotion to division one of the LTA’s Seniors’ Inter-County Championships. They completed their successful season with a 3-1 victory over Essex at Basildon, a result which secured second place in Division 2B and means they can now look forward to playing at a higher level next year.

Jane Williams, the team’s captain, with fellow players Liz Boyle, Jane Brown, Gill Snodgrass and Celia Toogood produced a strong team performance after making the long journey south to Basildon to face Essex at the David Lloyd Centre. They then delivered the result they needed to seal promotion, Liz Boyle and Jane Williams, the first pair, won both rubbers, before the county’s second pair Jane Brown and Celia Toogood, were successful against the second Essex pair. Shropshire were runners-up to Norfolk in Division 2B, a group which also featured Dorset, Leicestershire, Northumberland and Essex.
