Some of Carisbrooke’s National Club League players who made it all the way to the national finals in 2018
Last season was a historic one for Carisbrooke Tennis Club after their National Club League side made it all the way to the national finals in Bournemouth.
The club finished in an impressive fifth place overall, despite going up against tennis powerhouses with big budgets and household names.
It was the first time the club had made it to a national finals since the Silk Cut Cup days of the 1980s.
Although it might seem difficult to replicate that achievement in 2019, Carisbrooke are poised to have an even stronger squad for this season’s competition so hopes are high for another exciting season.
The club is hoping to make all of their NCL home matches an event again this term, with good crowds, barbecue food and the bar being open for all the clashes at Kenwood Road.
Carisbrooke went unbeaten at home last season and the more fans we can get down for the games the better. This season sees four games on home turf in the seven-match schedule.
