Sidmouth Tennis Club held it annual Awards Night at which the season’s major trophies were handed out, writes Leslie Cranston.
It was good to see some new names appearing on the ‘honours board’ this year.
On the junior side, Mollie Spalding for the girls and Eliot King for the boys were both crowned as was Marlene Maynard who lifted the ladies singles top honour, putting an end to the ‘Bess’ reign.
Jake Harrison, although still a junior, was a comprehensive victor in the men’s singles competition.
Newcomer Jane Corry won the mixed doubles playing with former club coach Ben Elliott.

Meanwhile, the Sidmouth Tennis Club Winter League teams are pursuing their respective campaigns with moderate success.
In the Exeter and District League, the men’s doubles team had an encouraging start collecting maximum points on more than one occasion, but have slipped to mid-table having been penalised for not being able to field a team!
The ladies A have won two of the three matches they’ve played and the ladies B have now played six times and currently sit third in the division.
In the East Devon League, the Sidmouth mixed team have won both matches they have played, but a stern test awaits this week when they meet table-topping local rivals Tipton St John.
