Aegon National Club League fixtures 2019

Some of Carisbrooke’s National Club League players who won the Midlands NCL title this season

Carisbrooke have now made it the National Club League national finals in Bournemouth for two seasons in a row.

The club secured their second berth in as many years after beating David Lloyd Burton Waters on June 23 in a winner-takes-all clash to decide this term’s Midlands league title.

Last season was a historic one for Carisbrooke Tennis Club after their NCL side made it all the way to the national finals in Bournemouth after winning a play-off following a runners-up spot in the Midlands league.

The club went on to finish in an impressive fifth place overall, despite taking on tennis powerhouse sides with big budgets and world-ranked players.

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 seemed difficult to replicate that achievement in 2019, Carisbrooke actually went one better this season by winning the Midlands division and making it all the way to Bournemouth without the need for a play-off this time.

The club went undefeated in the league and have now gone two-and-half years unbeaten at home.

This season’s national finals will take place in early September with a band of supporters due to travel south to watch the lads compete.

League results for 2019 were as follows:
