Martin Seligman and Sheena Darke organised the players into two groups, each playing a total of 24 games.
The finalists in each group, those with the highest individual game scores, were Christine Cooke, Charles Freeman, Alexis Alexander and Jane Jordan.
The other players then watched a very exciting and close final with Charles and Christine finally winning.
It was a great afternoon of tennis followed by a delicious Christmas leftovers tea.
The club morning on December 30 coincided withStorm Frank but, undeterred, nine players arrived, keen to play some tennis.
The nets were billowing in the wind, balls were sent flying and players found that serving was particularly difficult but everyone agreed that the experience was also exhilarating with sometimes comical effect.
The club will hold its half-term tennis camps from Monday, February 15. For more information, call head coach Chris Ovenden on 07769 934382 or email chris.ovendenÂ @gdtennis.co.uk
