For the first time in its history, Seaton Tennis Club has both A and B teams in Winter Division One of the East Devon Tennis League, writes Simon Prior.
After recent wet and windy weather, a fine, dry evening saw the two teams compete for supremacy in the first match of the season.
A small but noisy and partisan crowd gathered in the clubhouse to cheer on their favourites but in the end, the A team ran out eight sets to one winners with the pairing of Davis and Rose showing their quality with a 6-3,6-1 success.
In the ladies doubles, A team pair Jen Rose and Becs Huddon were too strong for Jo Little and Jenney Moroz, beating them 6-0, 6-1. There was a consolation for the B team with Moroz and Little pinching the first set on tie break against Rose and Hudson.
B team skipper Jo said: "We battled hard with little reward, but we'll certainly be looking for revenge in the return fixture in October!"
