The national team players together with captain Gordon Asciak, returned from Baku, Azerbaijan, earlier today after their remarkable feat of winning all their four encounters to gain promotion to Group III.
Our players topped their group after defeating Kosovo, Azerbaijan and Andorra. They then had to overcome the final hurdle in the promotion decider against the powerful Iceland team.
They achieved this by showing great resilience and winning the deciding doubles match after being a set down.
Members of the Malta Tennis Federation greeted the team upon their arrival at the airport. This was a proud moment for Maltese tennis and bodes well for future commitments. Well done everyone!
