It’s Dunn! Gilly and Pat are Boston mixed doubles champs

GILLY Dunn and Pat Amps are the new holders of Boston Tennis Club’s Open Mixed Tournament trophy.

The event attracted 16 couples, with the competitors were split between two groups.

Nathan Gunning and Emily Hawkesworth came out unbeaten from their group, with James Newton and Rachel Gedney finishing second.

The other group had varied results with Gilly and Amps losing out to Lloyd Bailey and Sophie Hawkesworth, who in turn then lost out to Lisa Stevenson and Calum McCaig.

However although Calum and Lisa won all their matches going in to the last, they then lost out 2-7 to Gilly and Pat.

In the final, Gilly and Pat called on their experience and went on to win against Nathan and Emily, succeeding 6-4.

The very last matches were played at the weekend in the Lincolnshire Leagues.

The ladies’ Seconds and Fifths and the men’s Sixths finished the season off with matches postponed from earlier in the summer.
