Updated: 9:48 am, Nov 20, 2015

IT WAS a winning weekend for Barnt Green Tennis Club as the Mixed B and Mens C teams both emerged 4-0 winners in differing circumstances.

The Mixed Team made short work of Droitwich as they failed to drop a set. Big-hitting Chris Linsell teamed up with regular Pat Langston to win both matches in double-quick time while the bustling energy of Hammad Ahmad and metronomic consistency of Victoria Clipsham were comfortably enough to see off the dispirited Droitwich team.

Meanwhile, down in the depths of Division 11, the newly-formed Mens C Team look on course to continue their push through the divisions with another victory at Droitwich, against their F Team.

First pair of Tim Clipsham and Tom Brand comfortably won their first match 6-2 6-1 while the second pair of Will Scarle and Dave Taylor lost the first set 6-4 before one of the opposition had to retire due to a twisted ankle, which handed the two rubbers to Barnt Green.

They then perked up in the second match, winning 6-2 6-0 to ensure that Barnt Green C continue their unbeaten start to the season.
