Triple success for tennis club

At last week’s LTA awards evening, three Cullercoats Tennis Club teams enjoyed success in the Aegon leagues.

The under 8 red team of Sam Knowles, Paul Freeman, Zoe Parkin and Max Boxhall and the under 9 orange team of Alfie and Archie Stokes, Dominic Wilson-Baker, Peter Whitehouse and Paul Freeman won their respective junior leagues.

The men’s senior team, consisting mainly of under 18 players, won the open competition.

The team – Rory Thompson, Daniel Simpson, Jordan Simpson, Sam Lemberger, James Brown and James Young – beat off stiff opposition to secure the title.

Jordan Simpson topped off the club’s successes on the night by winning the prestigious Junior Volunteer of the Year Award.

Cullercoats Tennis Club, next to St George’s Church, offers year-round social tennis and club play.
