There was a very welcome return of the Dunlop Lindum Lincolnshire Mini Tennis Team Leagues on Sunday following Covid disruption.

This week it was the turn of green players from Boston, Lincoln, St James, Woodhall, and Louth.

Boston Green 1 played Lincoln Academy with Callum Purdy and James edged out on a deciding tie-break.

It was a repeat performance versus St James as the boys finished in fourth place.

Boston 2 – Nayan Vyas and Sonny Wheatley – also had close matches in their group but a tie break doubles won 14-12 by the Boston boys put them in second position in this group.
