The Owen-George Cup for real tennis, played for at Moreton Morrell Tennis Court Club, has been won by Tom Lewis for the third time.
Tom, a former pupil at Warwick School who played cricket for Ashorne and lifted the trophy in 2013 and 2015, beat fellow club member Doug Holden.
The cup was presented by Richard Thornton, joint senior partner of Blythe Liggins Solicitors, who sponsor the event. It is named after Roland Owen-George, who together with His Honour James Blythe, founded Blythe Owen-George & Co solicitors in 1952, from which Blythe Liggins was formed in 1988.
“It’s a great honour for us to sponsor this event, marking the contribution made to this wonderful court by one of our founders,” said Mr Thornton.
Club chairman Simon Hobson said: “This tournament should have been held in March but we were forced to postpone it by lockdown so we are very pleased that we have been able to hold it at all this year and grateful to Blythe Liggins for their continued sponsorship and support of real tennis at Moreton Morrell.”
