Players from Wisbech Tennis Club tackled the cold and blustery conditions at their men’s tournament last week.

A tie-break singles theme over 10-minute games took place on Friday evening (January 17), where male players were split into two teams 'Rafa' and 'Novak'.

Each player faced one member from the opposing team, with excellent tennis being played.

The winners from each team were Bruno Maraschin and Duncan Partington, and the club would like to thank Wendy Cropp for organising the event.
