The top lady player at Wymondley Tennis Club has won her 20th singles title!
This was in Wymondley's in-house tournaments completed over three weekends in September.
The ladies' singles tournament, which was played as a round robin, was again won by Sue Byford - her 20th singles title. Runner-up was Sally Lovett.
James Smith did the 'double' by winning the gamble handicap in two sets over Marek Ambrozewski and taking the men's singles title, also against his close rival Marek, in a thrilling three setter which finished in near darkness.
