ROAD TENNIS moved to another level on Saturday night when it was staged indoors for the first time.

Three finals in the National Sports Council’s Inter-Parish competition were contested on a purpose-built court made from concrete wood fitted on the floor of the Gymnasium of the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex.

Perennial champion Kim Holder, representing St George, easily made the transition and smashed past St James’ Sheldene Walrond 21-13, 21-18 to win the women’s crown for the fifth consecutive year.
