Ely Tennis Club has made a strong winning start to the Cambs Dunlop Summer League Season.

Following on from a record six promotions in the Cambs Winter League, Ely Tennis Club’s Cambs Summer League Teams are raising the bar even higher.

Ely Men’s second and fourth teams are currently topping Divisions 7 and 13 respectively, whilst Ely’s Women’s second team and the Men’s third team sit second in Divisions 6 and 10 with a game in hand for each.

The Women’s third team and the Men’s first team both currently sit joint third in Divisions 8 and 6, and both teams also have a game in hand.

David Field, in his first season as fourth team captain, said: "This is a strong start to the summer league season for us, and we're looking forward to pushing on and trying to clinch one of the two promotion spots.”

Rachel Peacock, Ely Tennis Club chair, said: “This ongoing success is fantastic for our club and the Ely community, and the recent introduction of team coaching sessions with head coach Jack Pearson will no doubt be having an impact."

And the club celebrated the Roman Garos tournament in Paris with a suitable Gallic themed event in June where players were treated to French style games and food. Keep your eyes peeled for the Wimbledon Day on Sunday, July 9.

Ely Tennis Club was formed in 1989 and is proud to be a community based not-for-profit organisation, with its home at the EOSA complex at Ely Leisure Village.
