Successful Winter Season for Mackintosh Tennis Teams

It has been an outstanding Winter season for the Mackintosh tennis teams. All four teams playing in the Cymru Kitchens South Wales Doubles Winter Leagues won their respective divisions gaining promotion for the next Winter season. 

Some of the highlights of the Winter season include:

  • Men’s 1st team captain Neil Edwards turning up against former club Bridgend still feeling the effects of the previous night
  • Welsh international player Emily Watson turning up to play a Mixed doubles match against Rhondda and having to brush ice off the court to play
  • Mixed team captain Emma McClory getting distracted by chickens escaping from their pen during an important Mixed doubles match away to Cwmbran
  • Tom Griffiths’ awkward conversation with Cwmbran players about teams/players we don’t like playing against
  • The return of Mackintosh legend and Welsh Ladies Veteran player Kath Mutter in a vital fixture for the ladies team to help clinch the league title

The table below shows the finishing positions in the leagues.
