Match Report

The Cambridge tennis Blues rounded off an unbeaten BUCS campaign with a thumping 10-2 win over Nottingham Trent on Wednesday.

Captain Tim Prossor returned to action and partnered Michael Pedersen to win comfortably 6-0 6-1 at no. 1 doubles. The second pair of Alex Cole and Jerry Ganendra, teaming up for the first time, also enjoyed a routine 6-3 6-3 win.

Prossor was on the offensive throughout his singles match to win 6-1 6-1. At no. 2 singles, Pedersen withstood strong pressure in the first set from the Nottingham player, but eventually prevailed 7-5 6-0. Alex Cole continued his good form in the BUCS season and won 6-2 6-1 at no. 3 singles. Ganendra fought hard throughout but could not round off the tie for the Blues and lost 5-7 3-6.

With that, Cambridge have now secured promotion to the BUCS Premier division for next year’s campaign. It is a just reward for the Blues after the hard work being put into training and matches. Next up, the Blues have friendly matches against Queen’s Club and the British Army.
