In the Aegon Ladies’ Summer County Cup, Gloucestershire Ladies secured promotion to Group 5 in emphatic style, conceding only six rubbers throughout the entire week. The event was held at East Glos from 24th to 28th July 2017.
It was a fantastic week of tennis in which each member of the Gloucestershire team played extremely well and did the county proud. Special acknowledgement must go to Lissey and Laura who managed, once again, to achieve 15 out of 15 wins giving them their second entry into the 15/15 Club, a feat very few players ever achieve. Overall we fielded a very strong team and I look forward to being able to field equally strong teams in the future.
We had fantastic home support throughout the week and we would like to thank all who came to watch and cheer us on. We now look forward to Winter County Cup in November taking place in Shrewsbury, and to County Week next year in Group 5.
Team: Esther Curtis (Captain), Lissey Barnett, Laura Eales, Jenny Eales, Sophie Brazell, Ella Mora, Elsa Pool, Charlie Russell
