TENNIS: Drama as North Oxford win mixed title
10:00am Friday 13th September 2013 in Sport
North Oxford won the Mixed Division 1 title on a dramtic final day in the OLTA Wilson League.
Virgin Active were odds-on to lift the coveted Rose Bowl, but could only draw 2-2 at already-relegated Witney.
And North Oxford’s 3-1 win at Thame was enough for them to take top spot.
However, having already won the Ladies top title, North were unable to make it a clean sweep in the Men’s.
Banbury B won 4-0 in their final match against Norham Gardens, which saw them move level on points with North Oxford, but with a better rubber difference that gave them the crown.
The national end-of-season leaderboards are finalised, with Lucy Brown ranked eighth in the Open Ladies category.
There were other top-ten finishes for Sam Christie (12U, Goring), Asha Badiani (14U, North Oxford) and Ben Smith (16U, White Horse), but nobody could match Matilda Mutavdzic (White Horse), who finished top of the under nine category.
