New Mills Tennis Club Men’s team have had several close matches in Division Three of the North-East Cheshire League.
Against Prestbury thirds they were held to a draw but in their next outing they beat Poynton 6-5.
Then, against the divisional table-toppers Queensgate, New Mills found themselves 5-1 down after the first round.
However, they fought back valiantly to lose by just a single set, eventually going down 8-9.
With three matches to go, New Mills are third in the league and have a good chance of promotion if they can beat Cheadle away this coming Monday.
