HENLEY Tennis Club youngsters swapped rackets for bats to mark the club’s annual Junior Club Championships awards.

Celebrating success in the Junior Tournament which was played in July, parents and children went for something different and enjoyed a fun-filled family game of rounders, in which the competitive spirit was still evident.

Others also enjoyed a game of social tennis and watched the men’s singles final of the adult championships.

“It was a great day to celebrate everything the juniors have achieved,” said head coach Neil Supperstone.

“They have really enjoyed the competition and it’s certainly helped them with their matchplay skills. Well done to everyone who took part.”

There were six categories with awards for both winners and runners-up as follows:

Mini Red: Winner – Sam Courier; Runner-up – Lottie Wilson-Evans.
