Grantown Tennis Club was the venue for the presentation of the Highlands Tennis League trophies at the weekend.
Presenting the awards on Saturday was Phiddy Robertson of the league sponsors, Galbraith, the independent property consultancy specialising in estate agency sales and lettings.
Kingussie Tennis Club received the ladies division two rose bowl and were runners up in men’s division two to Lossiemouth
Rothiemurchus and Aviemore Tennis Club had a very successful season and were presented with the ladies division one trophy, the ladies division three (Highland) shield, and the mixed division three quaich.
Additionally, the club’s ladies A team finished second in the first division.
Grantown had a poor season compared to the high standards they have set in the past but this was due to a combination of player availability and injury and no doubt they will be keen to bounce back next season.
An ‘American’ tournament was held prior to the presentations being made at the clubhouse.
Seven clubs were represented with 38 players taking part in six rounds of doubles.
The competition was held in pleasant conditions in contrast to the previous Saturday’s heavy rain which forced the cancellation of the Junior event.
After two and a half hours of play which saw everyone completing six rounds, the event ended in a draw with Kingussie and Lossiemouth finishing on 14.5 points – this was the average score of the teams’ total score.
The winners will share the Galbraith Quaich for six months each.
No-one from the four local clubs picked up individual awards but Colin Ramsay (Kingussie) finished second equal in the men’s section and Marjorie Deans (Kingussie) was third in a closely contested ladies.
