Double Delight for Herts at the Summer County Cup!!

News, County Cup, Carousel, Achievements

We are celebrating in Hertfordshire after our Men’s and Ladies’ teams were both crowned champions at the Summer County Cup held in Eastbourne.  This is the 3rd time Hertfordshire have claimed both Ladies’ and Men’s titles having previously done the double in 2010 and 2012 and we are so proud of all the players. Fans this year were treated to a stunning week of tennis played in very hot and sunny weather.

Our men won all their matches bar one against Kent on Tuesday.  At the end of the week  it was a three-way split with Herts, Kent and East of Scotland all finishing with 8 points. However, Herts won more rubbers (31) than Kent (29) and East of Scotland (27) giving them the championship which they last won in 2017.

Congratulations and well done to our Men’s team for their magnificent efforts: Neil Bamford, Finn Bass, Charlie Broom, George Coupland, Lewis Evans, Daniel Martin, Neil Roskilly, Ryan Storrie, Oliver Tarvet and Captain Jeff Wayne.

Our Ladies won all of their matches and were clear winners of their group.  This is their 3rd successive title having won the competitions in 2019 and 2021 which is amazing (there was no competition in 2020). On top of that, players Amanda Elliott and Emily Arbuthnott both achieved 15/15 rubbers, well done ladies!
