Garstang Tennis Club started their 2013 campaign in the top division of the Ribble Tennis League with a nail-biting 7-5 sets win against a strong newly promoted Clitheroe team.

Andy Jones and Andy Hoskins were unbeaten in their mens doubles matches and the ladies pairings of Jo Charter and Libby Flintoff and Lauren Flint and Nicky Charter both defeated the second Clitheroe ladies pair resulting in a 4-4 draw before going into the deciding mixed doubles.

The “Andies” also won their mixed doubles matches when they teamed up with Lauren Flint and Nicky Charter.

The last match to clinch victory was a late night cliff-hanger with Jo and Mike Charter winning the final set in a closely fought tie-breaker.
