The North Wales girls’ under-18 tennis team has won promotion in the Aegon County Cup.
The girls won all three of their matches at the tournament in Gloucester to secure promotion to division 4B. They beat Northamptonshire 7-2, Oxfordshire 6-3, and Berkshire 5-4.
The team consisted of Charlotte Ainge, Megan Davies, Ethne Dowling (of Wrexham Tennis Centre); Lucie Hogg, Beca Hughes and Catrin Hughes (Mold Tennis Club); and Elin Anderson (James Alexander Barr Tennis Centre, Colwyn Bay). Jenny Broughall was captain and Kathryn Rymer assistant captain.
“This was a great achievement for the girls to gain promotion for the second year in succession, particularly with a clean-sweep of victories in the tournament,” said team captain, Jenny Broughall.
Elsewhere in the competition, the U18 North Wales boys battled to hold their place in group 6, while the South Wales U18 boys and girls teams lost in group 2.
