FRINTON Lawn Tennis Club hosted the 43rd international seniors tournament on their Holland Road courts.

The sun shone and some outstanding tennis wowed the crowds.

The seeded players for the men's over-60s event were Nick Lee (1), Malcolm Bryant (2), Tony King (3), David Stanton (4), Alan McGibbon (5), John Winston (6), Neil Taylor (7) and David Brown (8).

The seeded players were joined by a plethora of players from as far afield as Australia and Japan, giving the tournament its international status.

On court five, in the men's over-60s final, number one seed Lee played number two seed Bryant.

It was a tight first set, with Bryant taking it 6-4.

The second set saw a confident Bryant take the first two games in impressive style, with Lee retiring early to give his opponent the honours on the day.

Bryant said: "It's been 45 years since I last played on these courts and that initial feeling came straight back to me as I walked into the club.

"I had a look at the draw pre-tournament and managed to beat number three seed Tony King to earn my place against Nick, who's a great player.

"Nick has beaten me this year so it was good to get the victory on this occasion."

Bryant goes on to play at St George's Hill, in Weybridge, in his next quest for a title.
