The strawberries and champagne were handed out in Whetstone on Sunday after Myddleton Tennis Club won through to the final of the Winter Middlesex Mixed Cup.

In an enthralling tie, Myddleton went through five rubbers to three with one match unfinished. Stars of the contest were Paul Nelson and Jo Booth, who won all three of their matches to set the club up for victory.

Juliett Edwards and John Conway added a further point while Ian Johnson and Jo Pedrette made sure of the club's place in the final. The final will be played on March 3.
