Grantham Tennis Club Mini Oranges played in the Lincolnshire County Finals last weekend – and emerged victorious.

The A team were crowned county champions after beating Boston C team in the finals, a great result and a well-deserved trophy for the team and the club.

The B team finished fourth after with a narrow defeat in the semi-finals.

The A team consisted of Luke Cullen and Leon DeRaco, and the B team were Hugo Dunn and Josh Harris.

Grantham Mini Greens A team finished third in the county finals. Luke Cullen and Leon DeRaco played again after winning in mini orange, narrowly losing out on making it to the finals.

So all in all, a great weekend for mini tennis at Grantham Tennis Club, and with the Red A and B teams both in the finals this weekend coming, there could be more wins on the way.

l Grantham mixed first team played on Friday night against a strong Magdala team.

Grantham comprised John Cummins and Sophie Fletcher, Sue Cox and Rob Isaac, and Richard Smart and Liz Stoke.

The match was close and both teams battled well, but Magdala were able to walk away with a very narrow victory over the Grantham side.

Grantham men’s third team played against Mapperley Park at the weekend.

The team consisted of Nigel Birch and Mark Ottey, Martin Garrett and David Todd, and Colin Walton and Liam Fitzpatrick.

The team battled well but were unfortunate and narrowly went down 58-50.
