Scottish Cup

Dumfries Men’s Tennis Team (Lister McKiddie, Richie Cunningham, Les Harkness, Chris Topping, Graeme Cross and Lewis Gilmour) have been competing in the second round of the National Scottish Cup.  They played Hamilton which is a very strong West of Scotland team.  On the day Hamilton proved too strong winning 6-0, with the Hamilton first couple proving to be a different class.  The other matches were close and the Dumfries team as a whole battled hard to the end and pushed the Hamilton second and third couples with some close sets.  The Dumfries team will now focus on the Dumfries and Galloway League with the benefit of this experience.  They are aiming to win the League for the 7th year in a row. 

The Club would be delighted to hear from anyone interested in playing tennis and welcomes players of all ages and abilities.  Coaching is available from qualified coaches.  For more information go onto the website – www.dumfriessportsclub.co.uk or email – tennis@dumfriessportsclub.co.uk
