Nantwich Tennis Club Ladies 'A' team captain Sue Winters received the 2012 Slazenger South and Mid Cheshire Tennis League (http://www.smctennis.co.uk) Ladies Division 1 silver cup from League Secretary John White at the League Presentation Afternoon at Nantwich Tennis Club on Sunday 9th September. This was the twenty-ninth occasion that Nantwich Ladies have won this division. In 1972 the Nantwich Ladies won Division 1 for the first time. They won it for the next 3 years until 1975. From 1978 to 1986 (9 years) they won Division 1 and dominated the Ladies league. In 1987 they played in the Men's league, being promoted from the Division 6 to Division 3. In 1993 they returned to the Ladies league. They have won the Ladies Division 1 title from 1993 to 2012 (20 years). Are they invincible? This year they again won the League's Ladies Knockout competition, which they first won in 1980.
In 1983 and again in 1985 Sue Winters and Val Hutton won the Leagues Ladies Doubles tournament.
