By Pete Woodhouse

Wisbech Tennis Club held a tournament with a difference.

Sixteen players took part in an adult doubles tournament on mini-courts, using smaller rackets and softer balls.

Matches were timed so play was fast and furious, with all pairs aiming to score as many points as possible during each of the seven rounds.

Scores were close with just one or two points deciding many games. The eventual winners were decided on just one point difference. Following the tournament players enjoyed a buffet in the clubhouse.
