Women’s summer league Group 1
Carisbrooke finished in 7th, one place lower than in Group 1 last year.
The ladies ensured Carisbrooke’s long-running record * of playing top-flight tennis in the county continued. After a rocky start, they reeled off four straight wins in mid-season and in a very tight league, ended up safe from relegation with only seven points separating four sides from 6th place to relegated Victoria in 9th. Carisbrooke were safe by six points.
*= No official stat exists to say exactly how many years now that Carisbrooke’s ladies’ 1st team has been in the top flight but local guesstimates suggest at least 25 years and counting.
