Alicia Gates of Cults Tennis Club in Aberdeen won the ladies' championship following an afternoon of excellent sport.

The event was of a really high standard as some of the best players from across the country arrived in Angus to compete.

Top seeded Young beat David Killean of David Lloyd Dundee, last year's winner, by 6-3 6-2 while Gates, the first ladies' seed, pulled out a close match over Amy Hudson of David Lloyd Dundee by 6-2 2-6 10-5.

Killean won the men's doubles with Bernhard Struck over David Holmes and Michael Morrison by the narrowest of margins, 6-7 6-3 12-10.

Hudson and Sophie Smart prevailed in a seesaw ladies' doubles final over Gates and Karen Crawford by 6-2 3-6 15-13.

There was plenty of local success to enjoy on the day.

Angus players took home a sizeable haul of trophies, with Jan Fairlie and Alison Mohr of Abroath winning the 45-plus ladies' doubles.

Wendy Sanger of Montrose was the runner-up in the 50-plus ladies' singles.

Ronnie Edwards of Arbroath and Derek Petrie were second in the 45-plus men's doubles and Eddie Baxter and Charlie Kerr of Montrose were second in the 14-and-under boys' doubles.
