Well done to all players who competed over the weekend: it was great to see you all back on court after such an uncertain time for us all. 

Special mention must go to the 3 Northumberland players who won triple titles in their respective age groups; Tim Bodani at U19; Ellen Davison at U17; and Ryan Cockett at U15.  Fantastic achievement – they are all pictured below.

Thank you to Steve Abbott and Martin Fagan for running this Tournament and thanks also to Karen Davison and Daniel Tinnion for their supporting roles. 

We are now working towards Shires Matches and this weekend was great preparation for this. 

Well done everyone!!
