ROYSTON Tennis Club held the mixed and ladies doubles finals on Saturday.

First out were Kathryn Betts and partner John Goodbody against Karin Lambert and Roger Maybury and the exciting match saw the latter pair take Randall Cup by two sets to love.

Next up were the ladies doubles with Caroline McCormick and partner Christine Knight taking on Kathryn Betts and Sue Addison.

McCormick and Knight took the first set and despite being 4-1 up in the second after many deuce games Betts and Addison made a strong comeback to take the second set in a tiebreak before taking the third, and the Rose Bowl trophies, to claim the title.

These were the last matches in the club's annual tournament this year.

The next round of matches for all teams will start in two weeks when the Cambridgeshire Winter Adult League commences with the men's second team away to Buckden.
