ABBEY View men's B team have made an excellent start to the season in the City and Suburban Tennis League.

After taking maximum points against Abbey View C, Florence E and Basford C, they are sitting pretty at the top of division three.

In stark contrast the C team, playing in the same division, have only managed to amass three points from a possible 16 from their four matches.

They have suffered 4-0 defeats against both Abbey View B and Endon B, and a 3-1 defeat by Florence D.

The team's best result was a 2-2 draw with Alsager C.

In division two, Abbey View men's A team, after being relegated unexpectedly, have made a sound start with seven points from a possible 12.

A 2-2 draw against Draycott B, a 4-0 win against Alsager B and a 3-1 defeat away to a very strong Stone A, have set the scene for an exciting season.

Abbey View ladies have made a very active start to the season in the Staffs County League.

Unfortunately, due to unavailability of players, the team has lost away 4-0 against Etching Hill and Stone B.

They also lost 3-1 at home to Etching Hill B and by the same scoreline against Draycott B.

However, the most recent fixture has seen a change of fortune, with an excellent 3-1 win at home to Walton.

Having re-entered the league at the lowest level - Northern Division - the Abbey ladies are finding the opposition tougher than expected, so far gaining only five points from a possible 20.

In the same league, the men's A team, playing in Premier League Two after gaining promotion last season, are finding the going equally tough.

They have lost 4-0 at home against Lichfield Priory A and 3-1 at home against Bilston A. A 2-2 draw against Stone A has been the best result so far in a very tough division, with all opposition teams having great players.

In Division One North, the men's B team have drawn 2-2 against Draycott D and beaten Florence C 3-1 thus making a good start to the season.

Abbey View have recently had a very successful Open Evening, which has attracted a lot of new members.

A club spokesman said: "Any seniors who missed the opportunity to join are still welcome to come to the club, in Park Road, any Thursday evening at 6.30pm and enjoy some tennis."

Junior coaching continues every Monday, except school and Bank holidays: 4-4.45pm for 5-8 years, 4.45-5.45pm for beginners or improvers 9+ years old and 5.45-6.45pm for advanced juniors. There is also an adult session at 6.45pm lasting for one hour.
