The successful Friday squad of nine, nicknamed the ‘Unbeatables’ included Di Phillips, Debbie Richards, Mandy Vickers, Sue Manson, Lynda Hampstead, Jo Holmes, Sally Norris, Rachel Elliott and captain Deb Barnes.

Clevedon LTC have a strong pedigree in competitive team tennis and Tuesday’s ladies night has seen a big rise in players competing for places.
