Cheddar Tennis Club’s ladies A team finished as champions of the North Somerset League.

CHEDDAR ladies A team ended their summer league season in triumphant fashion, beating Minehead A 10-0 to ensure they finished as champions of the North Somerset League.

Having finished as runners-up in four of the past five seasons, the team of Debbie Sandiford, Paula Virgo, Claire Lacy and Vanessa Brill, ably supported by Juliette Knight, finally won the title.

At the same time, the B team beat Bridgwater B 9-2 to finish fourth in the top division, while Cheddar ladies C ended the season as Division 5 winners.

Although the men’s teams were unable to match the success of the ladies, both the A and B teams acquitted themselves well, finishing mid-table in divisions 3 and 5 respectively.

Monday and Tuesday nights now revert to general senior club tennis sessions. The club welcomes new members of all ages and abilities and anyone interested in social tennis, league matches or coaching should contact Jennie Colton on 01934 742703 or visit
