Dunmow Tennis Club hosted the Hopkins Open Tournament last Sunday.

Both Dunmow and Stebbing Tennis Club were represented with a total of 13 mixed double pairs.

It was a perfect summer’s day with excellent tennis played throughout.

With the pairs split into two mini leagues on both courts, the winners of each league, Ollie

Clark alongside Laura Baxter and Charlie Brown with Emily Ward, met for a nail biting final umpired by chairman Mark Jones.

A large number of spectators watched on as Brown and Ward narrowly beat Clark and Baxter thereby keeping the Hopkins trophy for the third consecutive year.
