On Sunday 5 September, Gainsborough Evening Tennis League Finals Day was attended by well over 100 people who enjoyed some spectacular tennis.

In the final of the Brittain Cup, Retford 1 defeated Wheatley Hills 1 in a hard-fought match played in good spirit.  The Holmes Cup was won by Scotter 2 who defeated Brigg 1 in a match that was on a knife-edge right up to the final round.

Entertainment was provided by “Smudge” who sang some well-known songs with real style to the huge crowd who enjoyed both the tennis and the refreshments organised by Gainsborough Tennis Club.

Proceedings concluded with the presentation of trophies to the winners of the two cup tournaments and to the winners of the four divisions.
