Tennis: Wisbech adult members enjoy mini-court tournament

Wisbech Tennis Club held a tournament with a difference last week.
A group of 16 players took part in an adult doubles tournament on mini-courts, using smaller rackets and softer balls.
Matches were timed, so play was fast and furious with all pairs aiming to score as many points as possible during each of the seven rounds.
And scores were close with just one or two points deciding many games.
The ladies partnership of Wendy and Nicky were the eventual winners and in their match against second-placed Tom and Lucy there was just a one-point difference.
