Tough opening tie for Croll

Have your say

The annual East Lothian tennis championships got underway in earnest today at North Berwick with English visitors topping the respective men’s and women’s singles seedings.

Rich Jones (Ealing) is fancied to eventually face David Holmes (Dunfermline) in the men’s, while favourite among the women is Reigate’s Emily Boden, with Barnton Park’s Heather Croll seeded second.

Ms Croll faces a testing opening tie against last year’s winner, Hannah Watson. The tournament got underway with over-40 and junior ties.
