Boston Tennis Club member Matthew Gedney was the runner up in the Grade 2 tournament at the Sutton Tennis Academy.

Matthew progressed to the final for the second time in a tournament of national standard.

In this Grade 2 competition, Matthew (pictured) beat number-one seed Jonathon Price (Essex) in the semi-finals but missed out in the final to Harry Lazell (Warwickshire).

Jake Sherrick reached the final of the Berhamsted Open Junior Tournament last week.

He too had success over the number one seed, Stanislas Ntchouissi (Surrey) at the semi-final stage, but lost out in a tough final to Esah Hayat (Middlesex) 3-6, 1-6.

And Poppy Gibbons, at mini red level, competed very well at a recent tournament held at Grantham Tennis Centre.

She reached the final and was the overall runner-up.

Sue Burnett and Jeremy George-Jones are the winners of the Bombay Brasserie Winter Singles Daytime League.

Ladi Hruban and Rachel Gedney are the runners-up.

George-Jones again put in a solid performance over the lifetime of the league and was unbeaten throughout his 18 matches, recording an impressive 36 points.

Hruban had 24 points, one ahead of Richard Tupper, while Richard Walker came fourth.

There is one further category in this league and that is for the player who wins the most number of games throughout the lifetime of the league outside of divisions one and two.

The winner of this is James Waterfall, with 91 games won, two points ahead of Phillipe Servonat with 89 games and then Sarah Ulyatt with 87 games.

The Boston Tennis Club Singles Leagues provides regular free competition against players of similar standards at a time to suit both players.

There are two adult leagues, one for daytime players and the other for those players available in the evening or at the weekends.

All of the leagues are for both females and males and can be easily joined by those interested.
