The Aegon Surbiton Trophy- A huge success in 2016!
So that's it for another year! What a great event we had this year at Surbiton Racket & Fitness Club! Attendance numbers for the event were excellent with our centre court being sold out on both semi finals and finals day. The hugely strong player field produced tennis of an incredible standard, providing a great week of entertainment for all the spectators, and despite the slightly inclement weather the vast majority of matches were played outdoors on grass!
