Jane Wilson and Kathryn Mason were the ladies' doubles winners defeating Jo Houlbrook and Rowena Okell, who are both newcomers to the club, in a closely contested final.

The mixed doubles provided compensation for Graham Bunting and Sarah Mitchell, who were both beaten finalists in the singles, when they defeated Luke Jennings and Rhian Perry in a three set final.

The finals were watched by a good number of club members and friends, many from the vantage point of the new clubhouse. The clubhouse and associated decking area will be completed in the next few weeks and a further two courts will be deep-cleaned in order to improve the quality of the playing surface. The floodlights are now erected and should be available for playing under by the end of September.

With all the improvements nearing completion it is certainly exciting times for the club.
