Wilby Adult Doubles Tournament
16 players enjoyed battling it out in the heat on Sunday 9th August.
For the first time in over 30 years that this tournament has taken place, last year’s winners retained their title. So once again, many congratulations to Rick Lim and Lisa King, who beat Ed Wombwell and Daphne Lunnon 6-2 in the final. Angela Wilby and her daughter Ros were there to enjoy the day and present the winners and runners up with their prizes.
