Victory for Grantham Tennis Club’s first team over Appleby Frodingham

Grantham Tennis Club's men's first team recorded their maiden win of the season after victory over Appleby Frodingham.

The side, which is sponsored by Belvoir Farms, had made the trip to Scunthorpe on a bright day for their second match of the season.

The home side were promoted to the First Division last year so Grantham were unsure how they would fare or what to expect.

After a hard-hitting first set went to Scunthorpe 6-3, Grantham won the second set 6-1.
