ROYSTON Tennis Club's ladies' team have secured promotion to division two.
Good performances by Pru Burton, Christine Knight, Kathy Betts and Karin Lambert handed Royston a 6-2 win over Burwell Victory in the winter league and the away victory handed the team at least second place in division three with only two promotion places up for grabs.
The only team which can beat them to the title - Exning - will have to win all of their three remaining games to do so.
The men's first team won convincingly 7-1 away to Great Shelford while the men's second team notched up a 6-2 win at home to Comberton.
