BUCHAN Tennis League has member clubs from as far afield as Cullen, Peterhead, Ellon and Oldmeldrum and places in between.

On Saturday, Udny Tennis Club in Pitmedden was privileged to host the 2011 Buchan Tennis League annual Junior Tournament which saw an extremely high standard of tennis from all the competitors.

There were three competitions played within the tournament and the finalists were as follows:

Under 16s doubles - Craig Ward (Ellon) and Anthony Low (Udny) beat Ewan Smith and Grant Rutledge (both Oldmeldrum).

Under 16s singles - Craig Ward (Ellon) beat Ewan Smith (Oldmeldrum).

Under 14s singles - Anthony Low beat Martyn Buchan (both Udny).

Anthony deserves a special mention as, at 11 years old, he was the youngest competitor and was playing in the under 14s and under 16s categories, so to take home two gold medals is fantastic. Watch your back Andy Murray!
