Club President Michael Milnes presented certificates and trophies to many of the club’s young players.
A cause for celebration in 2019 are the results of the LTA’s Team Tennis Premier Division when both Boston Ladies and Boston Men won the Regional Divisions and gained promotion in to the National Divisions.
