Royston Tennis Club had a busy start to the new Dunlop Cambs LTA Summer League season with three games taking place.

The big one was a clash between the ladies first and second teams with the sides both in Division Two this year.

And despite the firsts winning 8-0 the match itself was much closer with well over eighty per cent of the games going to deuce.

Both sides celebrated this first very enjoyable outing with a glass of wine after the match.

The second game at the Therfield Heath-based club saw the men’s second team take on Cambridge 4ths in Division Two.

And after a long four-hour match Royston came out with a 5-3 win in sets.

The final game of the afternoon was the first outing for the men’s fourths, a very close match in Division Seven against Chatteris that ended in a draw.
