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.
