Barnsley Tennis Club’s trophy cabinet was boosted at the weekend with three picked up at the Sheffield and District awards night.

Two of the club’s junior teams also won trophies for winning their respective leagues this season.

The club’s late summer Ladies’ team were Division Four champions and the late summer Mixed A team topped Division Three.

Barnsley also won the Winter Plate knockout tournament.

The Ladies’ B team finished runners-up in Division Five and sealed promotion in the process.

The under 12 and 16 teams both won their respective leagues.

Even more pleasing for the club was the turnout of players during the summer where they had 28 men and 16 ladies playing for the club across nine teams.

Under the guidance of award-winning Alice Robson and other coaches, the junior section has grown and developed with more than 100 receiving coaching and the membership has grown to 265 with the aim of reaching 300.
