A NEW tournament was held at Royston Tennis Club last Saturday, with 10 adult and 10 juniors playing in a new touch tennis format.

All players played single tie break matches with mini racquets and red mini balls on mini red size courts. The adults found this challenging while the juniors and minis were able to show their skills, many beating the adults.

Juniors Toby Jackson and Alex Gooding won through to the final and had a close match with Alex taking the trophy (pictured).

Meanwhile, in the Cambridgeshire Leagues the men’s first team of Andy Holmes, Matt Fellingham, Richard Fosbeary & Sam Tobiss continued with their winning streak with a 5-3 home win against Fulbourn. The men’s IIs of Erwin Phillips, Mike Fellingham, Roger Maybury and John Holmes lost 7-1 away to Cambridge VIs then reversed the score winning 7-1 at home to Cambridge VIIs with David Addison and John Goodbody replacing Maybury and Holmes.

The men’s IIIs made it three wins in a row with an 8-0 home win against Phennards IIs, team players were David Addison, Nathan O’Looney, John Goodbody and Jeremy Tuck. The men’s IVs team of Steve Gibson , Russell Hollingshead, Mat Leveridge and Doug Higgins also beat Phennards IIs away 5-3.
