Last year Alderley Edge entered one team in the East Cheshire Winter League for the first time. The team had to start in the bottom league. Having won all their matches easily, the league very kindly promoted them four leagues.
The teams consist of two ladies and two men. The ladies play two sets of doubles against their respective opposition, as do the men. Then two sets of mixed doubles are played against the opposing team.
This year Alderley entered three teams:
- The third team was placed in the bottom league - league 13. They won the league having played 11 matches and won 9, drawn one and lost one
- The second team were placed in league 10. They won the league, playing 10 matches and losing only one.
- The first team are now in league 8 and they also won their league, winning all their matches and only dropping two sets
So all teams won their respective leagues and will be promoted. Congratulations to all players for fantastic success in our second year of winter tennis.
