TEN­NIS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

THERE was dou­ble de­light for Mary Kendall at the Chal­font St Peter Ten­nis Club an­nual fi­nals day on Satur­day.

Kendall, a long-stand­ing club mem­ber, was drawn with Pete Fisher in the vets dou­bles fi­nal, and also with Pete’s son, Tom, in the mixed dou­bles fi­nal – with both matches end­ing in two-set vic­to­ries.

She also reached the fi­nal of the ladies dou­bles with part­ner Chris­tine Bolton, but this proved to be a step too far as her op­po­nents, Ali­son Wil­iams and Ch­eryl Rezek, this time took a two-set vic­tory.

Therese Cook­lin won the ladies sin­gles for the sec­ond year run­ning and Will Lade took the men’s ti­tle,

The day was the cul­mi­na­tion of a tour­na­ment which be­gan in May and ran through­out the sum­mer, end­ing in six fi­nals.
