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).
