Wellholme are champions


Wellholme Tennis Club’s Men’s A team completed an unbeaten season in the Calderdale Lawn Tennis League and immediately bounced back into Division Two as champions.

They clinched home and away wins over Cleckheaton, Elland B, Elland C, Marsden B and Wellholme B and racked up a total of 53 points.

Their 16 unbeaten matches included 12 wins which saw them finish seven points clear of their nearest rival Todmorden B, who, along with Mirfield A and Rastrick B, were the only teams to gain draws with Wellholme.

Consistency proved the key to the team’s success.

From the mid-point of the season the team recorded a run of seven consecutive 4-0 victories to clinch promotion with three fixtures to spare, winning 30 of the last 32 points available to end the season as clear champions.
