Sue Burnett and Dominic Beesley are the 2015 Boston Tennis Club Mixed Champions.

The Chattertons Boston Tennis Club Closed tournament saw the winners of two round robin groups emerge to contest the final.

Defending champions Claire Smith and James Newton edged their group despite strong opposition from Emma Mastin and Harry Foster.

In the other group, it was the mother and son team of Sue and Dominic which emerged top and headed to the final ahead of two other strong pairs – Owen Jary and Diane Sharpe and David Cheer and Jessica Frankish.

Sue and Dominic won the final 6-1 and Sue was reunited with the trophy that she last won alongside Phil Saw in 1986.

In the Aegon Team Tennis competition, Boston’s Men’s Firsts claimed the scalp of East Midlands Division table toppers Carisbrooke, from Leicester.

The team of Henry Beesley, Lewis Fisher, Felix Beech and Sam Kemp claimed an impressive 8-4 win.

After forging 3-1 ahead in the singles, a tight second round saw the first doubles go the way of Carisbrooke and the second doubles going to a third set tie-break, but Boston won this to give the team a deserved win.

This leaves Boston level on points but just in second place on rubber difference.

The Men’s Seconds came through a tie-break shoot out to beat Spalding in Division Two of the Aegon Team Tennis County League to maintain an unbeaten record.

The team was James Newton, Simon Bush, Calum McCaig and Dominic Llayton Hannam.

In the same division, Boston’s Thirds came excruciatingly close to the first win of the season, but missed out to Horncastle on a tie-break shootout.

The team of Thomas Cozens, Toby McDonnell-Woods, Ryan Frankish and Toby Collett won two of the four singles and went one apiece on the doubles but lost the tie-break shoot out.

Boston Ladies gained another good win in the Aegon County Division One, beating Grantham B team.

Emma Mastin, Jenny McGarel, Linda Barrow, Jessica Frankish, Charlotte Priestley and Chloe Robinson won 5-1.
