The Mansfield Tournament was contested in overcast conditions with the grass courts providing a low, and sometimes challenging, bounce.  Twenty-eight players competed over 6 rounds of 8 games in a friendly and enjoyable atmosphere.  John Gazeley from Retford Tennis Club triumphed with a clear lead of 4 points to take the men’s cup whilst Judy Brennan just pipped Jane Horner (both from Gainsborough Tennis Club) to win the ladies event.
