In 2018 the club had a men’s team in the 1st Division for the second time in our 81 year history. Not only that, they reached the semi-final of the league knock-out cup, however, were defeated by the eventual winner, Tennis World. They were also accepted into the Yorkshire County Tennis League and competed against teams including Beverley, the home of Kyle Edmunds.
A team of 4 men played 5 matches in Division 2 of the Yorkshire County League and finished an excellent 2nd. Last winter, they played in the second division of the North East Winter League of the National Premier League.
It was noticeable at the Slazenger Cleveland League Cup presentation in 2018, that with nine teams entered from our club, we were unching well above our weight compared to the number of teams from other clubs.
In the same year our Ladies ‘B’ team were promoted from 3rd to 2nd division. Both Men’s teams won cups and gained promotion. Men’s 1st moved up to Division 1 and the Men’s 2nd team to Division 4.
