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.

The mixed doubles was won by Sue and Marek - the first time in 25 years that they have been drawn together in the tournament, despite having played together for the same number of years in Wymondley's first Datchworth Evening League team.

Their opponents in the mixed were Marek's sister, Ewa, partnered by David Berry.
