The Stuart West Charity Trophy honours the memory of a very popular member at Orchard Tennis Club while at the same time collecting money for a nominated charity.

This year that was the Teenage Cancer Trust with the Blakemere Road-based club raising £750, a total that was boosted by a successful golf day at Redbourn.

Now in its eighth year the tournament produced its usual high quality of action on the court

Four teams of eight players competed for the trophy which this year was claimed by the team captained by Adam Reid.
