Oakham Tennis Club member Gordon Reekie was presented with the prestigious Hunting Trophy at the Leicestershire Tennis Awards evening last week.

The trophy is awarded following nominations put forward by fellow tennis players in recognition of achievements throughout the year. Gordon has been county over-65s tennis captain for three years and has led the team from Division Three to National Champions.

The trophy was given in memory of the Hunting’s son, Anthony, who was a tennis player before his death.
