The North Somerset League ladies’ doubles tournament was held at Winscombe.

SUZIE Stockwell and Charlie Scott of Winscombe Tennis Club, were victorious in this year’s popular North Somerset League ladies’ doubles tournament.

A total of 13 couples representing eight clubs entered the annual competition organised by Winscombe.

There was a high standard of tennis played in a spirit of fair and friendly competition. In their semi-final play-offs, Suzie and Charlie were down 1-3, but they kept their nerve to win in a tie-breaker.

Similarly they kept their fans on tenterhooks in the final, coming from 0-2 down to win 6-4 over Juliet Knight and Claire Lacy of Cheddar. Together they provided onlookers with a display of high quality tennis and some thrilling rallies.
