Brown and Tupper are tennis club doubles champs

Richard Tupper and Val Brown have been crowned champions of the Boston Tennis Club Summer Daytime Doubles Leagues.

The aim is to win as many games as possible each monthly round, where four players take part in three sets of doubles, partnering one another.

With a target of up to a maximum of 18 games per round, there is always plenty to play for.

The results from all the rounds are tallied up and at the end of the league the winner is the person who has won the most games.

Tupper won six of his rounds and a total of 128 games.

Geoff Presland, last year’s winner, was narrowly nudged in to second place with 127 games, after winning five rounds.

Val Brown won two rounds, accumulating 111 games to finish as the top female competitor.

The Summer Daytime Doubles League now seamlessly moves in to the Winter Daytime Doubles League.

Any club member wishing to take part can join by signing the entry form on the club noticeboard at any stage.
