Nailsea Tennis Club celebrated the recent Wimbledon Championships in style with a competition of their own.

Based upon a mixed doubles points system, the tournament saw regular players Leonardo Milleri and Erica Malaiperuman emerge victorious to be crowned as champions.

And it proved a double success for Milleri, who had also played in the North Somerset Summer League and helped the club secure promotion.

Chair Jackie Thompson said: "Nailsea has enjoyed a great summer of tennis, with some noticeable success, including Laura Smith and Lorenzo Milleri qualifying as LTA 1 Coaching Assistants, the launch of Ladies Group Coaching and the Men's team securing league promotion."

Nailsea is also running a Summer Camp for juniors which is open to all. Contact nltcjuniors@gmail.com for further details.
