Cumbria U18 Boys' Tennis Team has just returned from the LTA three-day annual County Cup event in Grantham having retained their position in Division 4 after being promoted in two of the previous three years.

The boys beat Lincolnshire 7-2, Gloucestershire 5-4 and lost to Berkshire 6-3.

The team captain and county boys' coach Jon Griffin said: "We took a very young team, with an average age of 15, to this year`s event but it was a team full of talent and the boys performed admirably.

"They were a credit to their county both on and off court and I very much look forward to seeing this group develop over future years."
