A new piece of silverware was presented at Sleaford Tennis Club as Samantha Ellis-Woods became the first recipient of the Interflora Cup.

Samantha received the trophy from the club’s recently re-elected chairman Stuart Clegg as the Most Improved Player of 2018.

Interflora sponsored the club last year and as well as the new cup, there was new kit for Sleaford TC’s competing juniors.

A club spokesperson said: “We are extremely grateful to Interflora for their support.”
