Bridgnorth’s tennis champs

Bridgnorth Tennis Club’s high-flying duo Holly Mowling and Cheryl Evans have qualified to play at an elite International tennis tournament after winning a prestigious national tournament.

Holly, who lives in Broseley, and Cheryl, from Shrewsbury, have been doubles partners for the better part of a decade. They regularly line up alongside each other for the Shropshire ladies’ side in the LTA’s Summer County Cup and Winter County Cup events.

The pair won the women’s over-35s title at the LTA’s National Seniors Inter Club Championships.
A successful tournament reached its crescendo in a 3-0 win over Taunton Tennis Club in the final, with the victory securing the duo’s place in the European Seniors Club Championships, to be played at the La Manga Club in Spain in September.

Holly said, “We knew we faced tough opposition against Taunton in the final, so we were very happy with the victory after some good singles wins which secured the tie. We’re both very excited to now have the chance to play in Spain. It’ll be a great experience to compete against players from all over Europe and the best clubs on the continent.”
