The inaugural men’s and ladies doubles day went off beautifully.
It turned out to be a day for the family pairings. The ladies tournament was won by Claire and Emily Taylor playing some excellent tennis. Jess Stobart and Becky Hoskins (wife of ex-pro cyclist Ed!) were the runners up.
The men’s tournament culminated in a father and son’s shootout between the Andersons and the Allisons, with the tighter pairing of Garreth and Harry prevailing over Charlie and the hard hitting Jake.
Many thanks to Gill Collier for once again putting together the event, even when she couldn’t be there, and to Chairman Jono Stobart for running the day.
Thanks also to Clive Francis for the photos (and the vertiginous lobs).
