Alice Atkins and Matt Davies retained their title at Abingdon’s annual Preston Bowl mixed doubles event.

To celebrate 100 years, the club put up a first prize of £100 as well as the prestigious trophy.

Sports’ B side can join their first team in the top flight if they beat Thame in their final Division 2 match of the season.

In Ladies’ Division 3, North Oxford B secured promotion with a 4-0 win against their C team.
