Teams from Halton, Riverside (Bedford), Chesham 1879 and Stony Stratford were up against each other in an exciting contest.

There were four players in each team and they were ranked on ability by their coach from one to four.

Each team got to play the other three, with the top ranked players coming up against each other, and the lower ranked players doing the same.

After two and a half hours and 48 matches completed, Riverside took the title with 20 matches won and Chesham 1879 were in a close second with 18 matches won. The winning players were Alfred Warren, Cassius Jessup, Daniel Doherty and James Tunn.

John Cavill, director of tennis for Stony Stratford Tennis Club and Tennis Works said: “It’s been a great event and something that all the players have really enjoyed.

“As tennis is an individual sport, it’s nice to bring a team element to it, especially for the younger players.

“The Junior Committee at Stony Stratford Tennis Club have been working hard to organise fixtures against lots of clubs at all ages and abilities and this is another successful result of their efforts.”
