The 11th annual Louise Willgrass Memorial Ladies' Doubles Charity Tennis Tournament was held at East Anglia Tennis & Squash Club in Norwich.
Thirty pairs of ladies played in five boxes of six for the initial round-robin under the watchful eye of referee Derek Perry.
The top pair from each box plus the next best three runners-up then went through to a knockout draw.
The semi-finals saw Susanna Cooper and Jo Gowing (Brooke) beat Sara Worley and Jenny Barton (Wortham) and Emily Wharton and Julia Waters (Wortham) beat Jane Ray and Eva Howkins (Diss/Lowestoft).
A raffle was held during lunch, laid on by the club, before a hard-fought match saw Cooper and Gowing beat Wharton and Waters in the one-set final.
