Banchory tennis teams have finished their match season in North East Scotland League. It has been a mixed season, with teams being promoted and relegated.

In the men’s leagues, Scott Craig’s team just failed to stay up in division one. There was a spirited rush of sets however they failed to catch the Cults B team. They will play in division two next year with Banchory B team, who won the division three title convincingly.

Organiser, Marek Wilowski helped secure the winning sets with a final game at Cults. The C team won division four with a number of impressive victories. A number of young players contributed to these wins and will be pushing for places in the B team next year.

In the ladies’ leagues, Banchory’s A team had a memorable victory over Aboyne to clinch second place in their league. It was a very close affair going into the final match and Banchory pipped Aboyne by one set throughout the twelve match season.

This means Banchory will compete in division one next year. Banchory’s second team had a very good season and finished in third place in division three. They finished with a draw at Ellon.

Captain Fiona Graham is delighted with the teams’ performance and it is great to see so many ladies playing team tennis.

All that is left in the competitive season is the annual championships at the Burnett Park courts.

Aboyne Tennis Club held its second parent and child tournament of the year on Sunday 28 September. The winning pair were Caitlin Fraser and her mum, Elaine Fraser.
