Uplawmoor Tennis Club has notched up one of its most successful seasons ever in the West of Scotland leagues, with three of the club’s six teams winning promotion to higher leagues.

The women’s second vets team reported that they went through the season undefeated with five wins and one draw.

The Uplawmoor team finished in second place, but that was enough to see them win promotion.

The women’s first vets team and the over 60’s finished in second place in their respective leagues, to complete Uplawmoor’s hat-trick of promotions.

The women’s first team came within a few points of winning promotion finishing third in a highly competitive league, while the Men’s team and the Women’s second teams both finished in the middle of their respective leagues.

Club President Murray Pollok said: “Having three teams promoted in one season is a tremendous achievement for a small village club like Uplawmoor, which has a tiny playing pool, compared to some of the major clubs in these leagues”.

A seventh team will be entered into this year’s West of Scotland league, it was announced at the club’s AGM last week, with a Men’s Vets team being entered.

However, it was announced one of the club’s stalwarts, Betty Drummond, that she has decided to hang up her racquet. Buff Scott, the Ladies second team captain, said: “Betty has been an outstanding member of the club, and undoubtedly one of the best and most consistent players we have had. She will be sadly missed as a player, but we hope she will still join us for our social occasions.”
