Over 60 men win league

Written by Bobby Kerr

IT IS celebrations all round for Helensburgh Tennis Club's over 60's men's team as they won their West League division with a 100% record of wins.

Well done to team captain Mike Bews, Ian Parlane, Ralph Ward, Iain MacLaren, Charles Carver, John Jones and Jim MacDowell for a fantastic performance. 

The men's 1st team secured their place in the 3rd division after winning four vital sets on Friday evening against David Lloyd West End.

Despite two regular players missing because of holidays, the team dug in against a team desperate to avoid relegation, and it was Alastair Hope and Bobby Kerr who once again got three sets to bring the pair's total to 14 for the season.
