In spring 2016 the annual Vets tournament began; 20 players entered the competition in 10 pairs. Throughout the following months each pair challenged other pairs to matches, each match played to the best of 3 sets. Everyone's scores were recorded and the pairs with the most points at the end of September made it through to the finals.
On a very cold winter's morning of Thursday 29th December our final match took place...
Sunday 18th September was Club Finals Day. It was a great and memorable day and will definitely go down in club history as the longest; having started play at 11am, the last match didn't finish until nearly 8pm.
Well done to all of our finalists! The results are given below:
Ladies Doubles - Kim Hartley & Cherry Ingram beat Bianca Pallat & Becks Damerell 6-3, 6-4
Mens Doubles - Gordon Dunn & Jonathan Davies beat Craig Naylor & Grant Mundy 1-6, 7-6, 6-4
Mixed Doubles - Kim Hartley-Buffham & Craig Naylor beat Becks Damerell & Gordon Dunn 6-4, 6-7, 6-1
Mens Singles - Craig Naylor beat Jonathan Davies 6-4, 6-7, 6-2

We've had a good response to our new Box League, which is still open for entries, and is providing some light hearted club competition. It is open to any full adult member of the club.
It offers an element of competition to social doubles play. There is no cost to enter, no prizes and no officials! Full information on www.bicesterboxleague.com
