Kirktonhill Lawn Tennis Club 2018

Latest Update 30/07/2018:



Well Done to our Ladies team who have won promotion to Division 3! The squad includes Fiona MacDonald, Clare Donnelly, Marissa Gordon, Karen Haggarty (capt), Trish Cameron and Anna Currie. Also involved were Celia McKenna, Yvonne Gadsby-Turner and Karen Goodwin.


Back-to-back wins of 8-1 in their final two matches made all the difference and means that the team have stayed only one season in the lower division. A great all-round performance from everyone concerned.


Gents achieved their highest placing ever, with great performances all burgh. Thanks to all involved including Duggie Mackechnie, Alan Barbour, Michael Corcoran, David Corcoran, Tom Corcoran, Steven Diver, Andrew and Andy Bone


There was a great showing from Alan Barbour and Andy Bone at the Vets regional event held in Helensburgh, with runners up to Bobby Kerr and Phil Hamilton Helensburgh.
