The first Norfolk Men's Invitational 2014 tournament has been won by Dan Wynne.

The tournament, created by Norfolk men's captain Barry Fulcher so that junior and senior players can compete together, was hosted at Easton Tennis Centre.

The event provides Fulcher with the opportunity to select his strongest team before this month's Winter County Cup.

Played over one day, the 16 invited players competed in round robin groups before a knockout.

Wynne came out on top ahead of Kris Jenkins, with Jack Long Martinez third and Tom Lamming fourth.

Fulcher said: 'We have realised the long-term benefits of getting the younger players involved rather than anything else.

'Three of the four groups were tied for first place, so it was tight all the way through. It was a very successful exercise and enjoyable seeing some proper battles and good to put some names to faces.'
