Harpenden's Joy Allsopp was the winner of the 50 and over singles while John Barnett celebrated the 75 and over title.

The oldest competitor over the weekend was 84-year old Leonard Lawrence, currently ranked number two in the country in the over 80 category.

Peter Yeoman, Harpenden finalist alongside Marcus Stapleton in the 45 and over doubles said: "It’s a real treat to play such competitive grass court tennis, with people coming from far and wide to participate.

"It’s a great environment and was lovely to have a drink and a chat with the guys after the match."
