Tennis: Dumfries A team secure Men’s championship

25 07 2011

On a perfect night for tennis on thursday (21st July), Dumfries A entertained top of the table Stewartry CSC in a match to decide who would be crowned 2011 Men’s league Doubles champions. Credit to both teams for a great season with Stewartry having recorded 9 straight wins with Dumfries having 7 wins, 1 walk-over and a single loss at Stewartry earlier in the campaign.

Dumfries required a big win to overhaul Stewartry at the top and with several matches requiring tie-break finishes a long and exciting match concluded with Dumfries winning 5-1 which was enough to secure the league championship by 1 single rubber.

Congratulation to both league championship winners, Dumfries A (men’s) and Dalbeattie A (ladies).

Mixed League
No matches took place in the A league with 1 match postponed and the other two being awarded as walkovers.

In the B league Dalbeattie beat Stranraer 5-1 and Kirkcudbright travelled through to Dumfries B and narrowly lost by the odd game after the match had finished 3-3.
