The Whangaparaoa Chelsea Cup team consolidated their great start to the competition with a 5-1 win over a strong Northcote team, last Friday.

The home match was moved to the indoor courts at Albany Tennis Park, but this did not deter a fantastic group of supporters who travelled down from the Coast to cheer on our boys.

The fixture was tied 1-1 after the first two doubles matches with Alex Hamilton & Freddie Cashmore-Chatwin having a convincing win 6-1 6-3. In the top doubles match Chester Espie & Michal Pozaroszczy fought hard in a match going down 6-4, 6-3

Whangaparaoa then went on to record 4 wins in the singles. Chester Espie and Teo Susnjak won their matches by default when both of their Northcote opponents withdrew due to injury.

Freddie Cashmore-Chatwin had a convincing 6-1 6-4 win in his singles match. And in the match of the night Alex Hamilton came from 1 set down to beat former professional & Davis Cup player, Steven Downs.
