FAILING light brought women’s State Tennis League matches to a close between Hensman Park and Blue Gum with a similar draw between North Beach and Cottesloe; leaving Kings Park well clear on top of the women’s table.
In the men’s league, Mt Lawley Tennis Club backed up last week with another win over Bayswater 5-1 and Kings Park could not match their triumphant women and went down one rubber to five against Hensman Park.
Cottesloe caused a huge 5-1 upset over leaders Mosman Park (MPTC) who the week earlier had destroyed Hensman.
Dalkeith Tennis Club (DTC) bounced back from injuries to post their first win with a fighting display at home against Peppermint Grove (PGTC).
Straight-set wins by DTC’s Dane Propoggia over Josh Bowen and Dylan McCloskey over Josh Spring set up the win.
