Cullercoats Tennis Club celebrated a winning double with both their mini tennis Red (8 under) and Orange (9 under) teams winning the LTA Northeast leagues recently.

The Orange team of Max Boxshall, Sam Knowles, Paul Freeman and Zoe Parkin beat Cramlington, Collingwood and a close game against Ponteland to win the league without losing a fixture.

Freeman and Knowles and Boxshall and Parkin teamed up well to take both doubles rubbers to complete the final win over Ponteland.

Cullercoats Red team still have fixtures to play but can not be caught at the top of the league after two victories over Ponteland and wins against Collingwood and Cramlington.

Most of the Red group will also stay together as a team over the summer leagues.
