EVESHAM Tennis Club have been voted club of the year for 2014 in the South Warwickshire Summer League.

The Premier Division outfit claimed the King Cup after proving to be a model club over the course of the season.

League secretary Corin Bishop eliminated those that did not field a junior league team and any fined for rule infringements or putting out only one pair during the campaign.

With seven clubs left, another was knocked out for missing a junior match and four previous winners were discounted in order to reward a new victor.

Vale neighbours Evesham and Pershore battled it out in the end and the former club won having made the last four in 2013 and maintaining their clean record.

They are ably led by long-serving team contact and captain Ray Foster-Morison.

He is supported by club coach Andrew Crowther. who also organises the junior side that finished runners-up in Pool ‘C’.

Their men’s team finished runners-up to Stratford in the Premier Division, a position they also reached in 2007, 2008 and 2010.

Evesham’s picturesque courts are based near the banks of the river Avon.
