North Oxford’s men stayed top of their Aegon Team Tennis regional division with an exciting 7-6 tie-break shoot-out victory over Hampshire’s Thornden club.

It was all-square at 4-4 after the singles rubbers as Jay Sexton and Thomas Bowden, playing at No 3 and 4, recorded comfortable successes.

Jack Rooney and Christian Petersen, however, lost tight matches in the top two singles.

The doubles rubbers were also shared, with North Oxford’s second pair of Bowden and Petersen winning comfortably again.
