Notts County teams are sponsored by Brenntag
Playing at a county home venue of Caunton in North Notts, the team line-up for the Saturday consisted of Isabella Smillie, Ava-May Thomasen, Lorena Gudrite and Bethan Wright.
The girls were in good spirits and up for the challenge ahead. We faced a very strong Warwickshire team in the first match and lost the fixture 6:0. The second fixture with the singles taking place on the same day was against Buckinghamshire who again has a very strong team. The girls fought hard and despite playing some good tennis and showing some real fight lost out 4:0.
It was a long day at the club with some long matches but even with how tired the girls were and the result not going our way we all stayed and supported each other to the end and all left with a smile enjoying the opportunity to compete as a team once again.
Sunday, a new day, and with few new players on the team we were ready to come back and give it another go. Cerys Crowther and Holly Brooks came in as the two new players and got under way with a great doubles win picking up the first win for Nottinghamshire which raised spirits and set the tone for the day. Now for the last fixture where we had a great battle against Oxfordshire. There were some tough long matches with Bethan and Cerys fighting through 3 sets to give us the 2:0 lead. After Isabella stormed to 4:1 4:0 victory, we went into the doubles 3-1 up so it was all riding on the doubles. Oxfordshire fought back in the doubles and played some great tennis taking to a 3-3 draw which meant it all had to be decided on a shoot-out which unfortunately we narrowly missed out on.
Although the results didn’t all go our way the girls enjoyed competing as a team again and was great to see how they grew as a team and supported each other throughout the weekend. They left wanting to train more and couldn’t wait for the next county training session.
Well done girls for fighting hard and most importantly enjoying your tennis and working well as a team!
