Benjamin Fuller and Rosie Trull joined forces to win Newmarket URC Tennis Club’s Hazlewood Trophy American style doubles tournament on August 20.

All three grass courts were used for a round robin tournament, in which players swapped partners after each round.

The top eight players based on aggregate games won played in the semi-final stage, where Fuller and Trull got the better of John Harvey and Pablo Cuenca.

The final looked as though it would be a one-sided affair as Fuller and Trull took an early lead at 3-0 over David Irani and Teresa Alvarez.

However, they were pegged back and the first set went all the way to a tie-break, which Fuller and Trull won 7-4.

And the second set was much more of a straightforward affair, with the pair coming through 7-6(4) 6-2.
