The newly-introduced under 12 (rating restricted) category saw some good performances from Alastair Boothby, Ted Shears and Alex Pinchin.

At orange level, Boston’s Paul Aranin and Lilia Halyova won three out of the four singles to gain the overall team victory.

In the under 12 category, brothers Max and Thomas Mecklenburgh won 4-2.

Boston’s Men’s team beat Grantham 8-0 in the Lincolnshire Slazenger Veterans League, Ray Frankish, Chris Cook, James Newton and Jeremy George-Jones finishing victorious.

In the Boston and District Winter League, Boston B ended Boston C’s long unbeaten streak.
