Newcastle Tennis Club played Dundalk A team in a North South League match on a lovely late September night in Newcastle.
Eugene McGuigan and Hazel Carder playing at number one, had a very closely contested match, just losing on a championship tie-break.
Meanwhile, Newcastle pairing Brendan O’Connor and Liz Brown lost in two close sets.
The ladies then played, with Hazel and Liz losing the first set 5-7, before winning the second 6-2. A championship tie-break, to decide the match, was closely fought with the Newcastle ladies ultimately disappointed to lose by two points.
On the other court Eugene and Brendan had a hard hitting match against their Dundalk opponents, who proved too strong, with Newcastle losing in two sets.
There are two more North-South League matches to be played, one away at Mullingar and the last at home to Dundalk B team.
