Congratulations to our Cambs County Tennis 45s Men's team (Left to Right - Andrew, David (captain), Scott, Alan and Pieter) who won the National Inter-County Championship Finals this weekend at David Lloyd Tennis Centre at Brierley Hill. This is a brilliant achievement to win the overall Men's 45s Championship in the winners play off. Out team already won their division playing five other teams over the summer in Division 1B with Surrey winning Division 1A. At the end of the year the winners and runners up, of all the age group Inter-County divisions are invited to play in the final play offs to establish the overall winners.
