CULLERCOATS Tennis Club won the Coast Tournament for the 11th time in its 19-year history.

The club joined Beverley Park and Collingwood clubs in the annual October Mixed Doubles Coast Tournament.

Four couples from each club took part in the round-robin tournament with the top two pairs from each group going through to the last four.

In an all-Cullercoats final, Sam and Abigail Lemberger – fresh from their success in the mixed doubles at the club’s annual tournament – beat James Wilson and Rachel Knowles in a closely contested match to lift the trophy.
