The Finals of the Ladies & Mens Grays Cup knockout competitions were held at Hills Road Indoor Centre on Saturday 1st October.
This cup competition is open to all clubs who have League Teams in Divisions 3 or below of the Cambs Summer League
The Ladies Final was a repeat of the 2015 final, with holders Histon taking on St Neots. Both teams had regular players missing but after some excellent tennis the St Neots team won by 5 sets to 2 and so reversed the 2015 result. The St Neots team were Helen Bloxham (Capt), Julie Payne, Caroline Gregson and Angela Lowe. Histon were represented by Nicky Wright (capt), Margaret Chambers, Sara Randall and Ann Turner
The Mens Final was a fantastic contest featuring 2015 beaten finalists Cambourne represented by Arif Kibria (capt), David Cansick, Salil Saha and Steve Horvarth. Their opponents Royston fielded Matt Fellingham (capt), Rupert Matthews, Toby Jackson and Ross Agnew.
A really high level of entertaining play ended in a draw - 4 sets each - which meant the Cup had to be decided with a championship tie-break. This was played between Arif and Steve for Cambourne and Matt & Ross for Royston. The very exciting tie-break was played in the same excellent spirit as the match. In the end Arif & Steve won it 12-10 for new champions Cambourne
