Three young tennis players North Tyneside were in the Northumberland 9 and under country cup team in competition in Sunderland.

Elizabeth Graham, Scarlett Wilson Baker and Sam Knowles played their part in the competitive action.

Graham, who plays at Collingwood Tennis Club, and Wilson Baker and Knowles, who play at Cullercoats Tennis Club, had some great games against Yorkshire, Durham and Cleveland and Cumbria.

Both Graham and Wilson Baker won games on the opening day against Cumbria in a 12-6 defeat, whilst Knowles, playing at No 1, won his singles in a 12-6 win over Durham and Cleveland in the next match.

Yorkshire provided too strong opposition over the weekend, winning the county group with maximum wins, however, all players enjoyed the team atmosphere and chance to represent their county.
