Tennis: East destroy Warwickshire

Have your say

East tennis men maintained their superb start to the AEGON inter-county tennis championships with a second group three victory, by 6-0 over Warwickshire, at Hunstanton.

They now take plenty of momentum into today’s clash with bottom outfit Nottinghamshire.

Alas, the East women suffered a setback when they were edged out 5-4 by Middlesex in a match that saw Millie Stretton and Sonia Vickers suffer an excruciating defeat by 7-5 in the third set after losing the first on a tie-break. Mhairi Beattie and Emma Devine were again in convincing form, winning all three matches for the loss of just eight games overall.
