Clevedon Lawn Tennis Club teams had mixed fortunes as competitive tennis returned.

The Avon Summer League restarted on May 7, with Clevedon entering two men's teams and a women's team.

The men's first team, consisting of Myles Wellings, Mike Maiden, Ben Foster and Marc Azevedo, lost their Division Three home match against a strong Clifton side 8-2.

The hard-fought contest included an epic 2.5-hour match between Foster and Azevedo and Clifton's second pair.

The second team of David Thomas, Simon Holmes, Ian Law-Smith and John Whitaker won their Division Nine match at Winterbourne by the same 8-2 margin.

In readiness for the start of the North Somerset Tennis ‘Corona’ League on June 17, Clevedon LTC are playing a number of friendly warm-up local derbies, the first against Wrington.
