Palmers mixed fortunes in Essex U18s league
5:30am Sunday 3rd June 2012 in Sport
TENNIS: PALMER’S Essex League Boys U18s team have been in court action – with indifferent results.
They beat Great Baddow and then came up against Old Chelmsfordians.
The Thurrock squad comprised (in seeded order) Daniel Monk, Alex Gee, Patrick Stenson and Jack Cable.
In the singles rubbers Dan Monk had a magnificent 6-0 win but Gee, Stenson and Cable all lost.
The doubles fared little better with the pairings of Monk and Gee going down 4-6, while Stenson and Cable lost a close encounter, 5-7.
Against Thorpe Bay at home was tough too although Dimeji put up a impressive showing for his first competitive match.
Palmers need better from their final two fixtures if they are to stay up in Division Two next season.
Palmers have unveiled Cardio Tennis at the sports centre.
Run by LTA qualified coaches, the emphasis is on getting fit by indulging in high intensity tennis drills. It’s the Zumba of tennis and has become extremely popular worldwide.
Rackets and music are provided and anyone interested in getting involved should call 01375 898613 for details.
