On May 22nd Wivey’s Super-Vets tennis team came away from its first visit to Minehead of the season with a 1-2 deficit after a warm-up injury led to a shortened programme.
Ian Colley pulled a muscle in his leg minutes into the warm-up which left him and Maggie Andrews sitting out the first match, which Helena Trump and Jeremy Toye lost 0-6, 2-6 to Don Simmons and Ros Neville.
Maggie and Helena evened the score with a 6-3,6-2 win in the ladies’ doubles over Ros and Mary Fay, but Jeremy Toye’s partnership with on-loan Minehead stalwart Julian Anderson lost to Don and Dennis Hill  4-6, 0-6 for a 2-1 win for the home team.
