Largs Ladies 1 team maintained their First Division status with a vital win to see off Ayr Fort at Douglas Park last Wednesday.

With Wimbledon starting on Monday, the local ladies showed that they had the nerve to win the big clash as survival in the top flight went down to the wire.

The ladies team, pictured, are Sarah Cunningham (captain), and her mum Lesley MacLellan, who played as a doubles pairing. Sue Wilkie partnered Hazel Koerner, and Janie McKenzie joined Chris Reekie.

It was commiserations through for Largs Ladies 2 team who were pipped to promotion to the First Division on the final night, on a dramatic day for fixtures in the Ayrshire Doubles League.

Largs Tennis Club play on Sunday afternoons and Monday evenings at Douglas Park, and have been hosting a number of tournaments this year including the Murray Cup, which involves a number of doubles matches throughout the season with the final results compiled with the four playing off in finals day later this year.
