ROYSTON Tennis Club's mixed first team secured promotion to Division One with a 5-3 victory at Burwell.

The team which consisted of Andy Holmes, Pru Burton, Richard Fosbeary, and Christine Knight, turned in an impressive performance, and the victory sealed automatic promotion, with a match still to play.

Like the mixed first team, the ladies maintained their unbeaten record with a 7-1 demolition of Cambourne. Pru Burton, Christine Knight, Kathy Betts, and Karin Lambert proved too strong for their opponents in what was another fine display.

However, the men's first team saw their unbeaten run come to an end when they lost at Huntingdon seconds.

Despite a strong showing by John Goodbody, Andy Holmes, Richard Fosbeary, and John Holmes, Royston went down 6-2.

The men's seconds also went down to Huntingdon, with Steve Gibson, David Addison, Roger Maybury, and Ralph Betts beaten 5-3.
