THE Boston Tennis Club Singles Leagues – sponsored by Bombay Brasserie – held their presentation evening last week.

Club captain Henry Cheer presented trophies to the winners and runners-up.

Jeremy George-Jones completed the double winning both the Main Singles League and the Daytime League.

Madeline Verdegaal was the winning lady in the Main League, while Sue Beesley was the leading lady in the Daytime League.

The runners-up in these leagues were Calum McCaig and Ladi Hruban respectively.

David Cheer won the trophy for the most improved player and Lesley Addy was named most consistent.

Victoria Beardsley won the Yellow Ball League and Michael Niedermeier was the runner-up.

Hattie Needham and Thomas Cozens were the highest-scoring players in this league.

Lucas East carried off the Green Ball trophy while Daniel Dorey-Rodriguez was the runner-up.

In the Orange Ball League it was Matthew Gedney in first place, and William Cheer in second place.

Finally the Red League trophy was collected by Harvey Vickers with Millie Alexander the runner-up.

The St George Tournament was a successful event.

Played indoors, 32 players took part, and partners are drawn for every round.

After three rounds the competition splits in to two halves according to how many games a player has already won.

The event then becomes a knock out.

The winners were Peter Elphick and Geoff Presland, with other contenders Jim Mackin, Caldwell Smythe, Margaret Allen and Ros Keane.

The other half of the knock out draw was won by Jude Green and Maurice Lawrence.
