TENNIS: Oxon men on the up after last-day victory

First published in Sport

Oxfordshire's men clinched promotion to Summer County Cup Group 4 with a 5-2 win against Buckinghamshire at West Worthing yesterday.

Needing victory to make it three promotions in a row, captain Jon Maskens and Sebastian Rey won both their matches at first pair.

Tom Greenwood and Benedict Calnan followed suit at second pair, before the last Bucks pair withdrew as Oxon reached Group 4 for the first time in a decade.

Maskens said: “We’re delighted. We were expecting to win, but we knew it would be tough. It was never going to be a given.”

Oxfordshire’s women, already relegated from Group 6 at Ilkley, Yorkshire, having lost four matches in a row, beat Hereford & Worcester 7-2 win in their final tie.

Oxfordshire skipper Emma Tolson said: “Obviously we still go down, but it was good to have a win.”
