Fairlawn Winners 2018

After more than 20 years of participating in the Fairlawn Tournament we are very proud to announce that we are winners!

The Fairlawn Trophy is a club tournament that runs in parallel alongside the Liverpool Leagues and is open to all clubs to participate in.  It was first competed in 1965 where each Group club was invited to field a team of 6 mixed doubles. Over the years different formats have been tried before the current arrangement of 4 mixed doubles was finally agreed. The Trophy is dedicated to the Fairlawn Club which was a prominent member of the Liverpool Group until 1964 when “circumstances” forced the club to disband and resign from the Group.

On Sunday 12th August we were scheduled to play Widnes Tennis Academy in the final of the tournament, but due to severe weather warnings the match managed to be moved to Widnes’ indoor tennis courts. The standard of play was exceptionally high and we are delighted and relieved to at last win after taking part in so many fruitless finals in recent years.  This is our first Fairlawn win since 1992!

Liverpool League 2018 Season Review

 We had another great season in the Liverpool League with our Ladies teams winning silverware and promotions and our club winning the Fairlawn Tournament!

Our Ladies’ first team finished 2nd in division A again, our second team WON division B and our third team are promoted having come 2nd and will be in division C in 2019!  So, for 2019 our Ladies will have two teams in division A and one in division C.

Our Mens first team had a hard season in division B but they fought well and kept their place in this tough division.  Our second team also fought hard and finished 6th and stay in division D, but our third team suffered a relegation and will be in division H next year.  But we still go on with heads high and the men will fight for silverware in 2019.

During the 2018 season we also participated in the  Brockbank Cup and Fairlawn Trophy tournaments.  We were Semi-Finalists in the Brockbank Cup and in the Fairlawn we only went all the way and finally WON the Fairlawn Trophy after 26 years of trying!

All our teams are raring to get their back on court with their freshly gripped rackets in hand for the 2019 season…but would YOU like to join us?  Go on, why not!  Click on the JOIN US link to find out how.  We play regular matches in Summer AND Winter now in both Liverpool and Wirral Leagues.
