On a chilly but dry August Bank Holiday Monday, ten couples turned up at 10 a.m. to contest the Deddington Tennis Club Summertime Slam.

After four hours of thrilling tennis the winning pair hit the last ball of the day!

Martin Ward and Peter Dahlman triumphed in the Final over David Edwards and Bis Neog whilst in the
Consolation Final Tony Jopia and Tom Dodds took the honours beating Becky and Ben Jones.

The finals were close as they both had to be decided by tie-breaks and the long rallies kept the watchers on the edge of their seats right to the end.

Congratulations to the winners and thanks to Paul Taylor and his team for organising the event.
