Stamford Tennis Club legend Carole Wilson continued her domination of the popular Hunstanton Tennis Championships.

Wilson has won scores of trophies at the mass-entry event in her career and she added three more to her tally this year in three different age groups.

Wilson won the over 4os women’s singles, the over 50 womens doubles and the over 55 mixed doubles.

Lorna Holden, also of Stamford, was her partner in the doubles. Caroline Beaty of Longthorpe Tennis Club was one of her victims in the mixed doubles, a final that was won after a tense, hard-fought final set tie break.

Stamford pair Rachel Prentice and Louise Wilcox won a restricted womens doubles event. City of Peterborough’s Nicky Keir and Elizabeth Williams lost at the semi-final stage.

City star Alan Jordan, who has represented many clubs in his illustrious career, won the men’s over 45 doubles with partner Andrew Creighton.

Jordan was also a losing semi-finalist in the mixed over 45s event alongside Lonthorpe’s Gee Farnsworth.

Phil Watson and Jane Eayrs of Longthorpe also lost at the last four stage.

Colin Pummell of Deeping Tennis Club won an over 55 mens doubles event alongside Robert Slade.

Longthorpe are celebrating double success in the Hunts & Peterborough Mens League.

The A team won Division One with a 100 per cent record over seven matches and they will be joined in the top flight next season for the first time by the club’s B team who won Division Two after tasting success in five of their seven games.

B team squad: Alan Swann, Jim Daintith, Mark Nicholas, Graham Moyle, Julian Evans, Hans Seeberg and David Stevenette.

Deeping won Division Three without losing a match.
