Huntingdon Tennis Club provided the stage for the Hunts School Sports Partnership event - open to children in years three and four - which featured a double success for Bury CofE Primary as their 'A' and 'B' teams both triumphed in the afternoon competitions.

Great Gidding CofE Primary School and Westfield Junior School had earlier taken victories in the 'A' and 'B' morning events.

The two winning 'A' teams will now represent Hunts in the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough School Games Summer Finals.

Mini Red Tennis is a form of the game aimed at children aged eight and under, being played on small courts with short rackets and soft balls.
