On the road

TENNIS PORTADOWN A players were recently handed successive road trips by officials in a bid to bring up-to-speed the Belfast and District League programme.

Unbeaten Portadown A had a midweek date in Cavehill scheduled for this week and will travel to CIYMS on Sunday.

The side’s latest league match finished level at two apiece against Lurgan B at Edenvilla Park - the team’s fourth draw in five outings.

In the Winter League structure, Portadown men met Cavehill last weekend and finished 1-1. The ladies suffered a 2-0 reverse against Cavehill.

Tomorrow’s (Saturday’s) Winter League schedule presents the men with a visit to Windsor on the cards but a blank date for the ladies, with the latter players working hard to fit in a recently-postponed game with Hillsborough.
