Flynn won the ladies doubles with Helen Hillson and the mixed with Stuart McKeonis on a busy day.

Flynn and Hillson beat Jacque Woolley and Clare Jackson 7-5 in the third set, before club coach Tom Bowers, 25, beat 2017 runner-up Kevin Miller, 40, 6-1, 7-5 in the men’s singles.

Miller partnered Adrian Holley to his first Grove title in the mens’ doubles, as they beat Andy Rice and Ed Wells in a three-set encounter.

Rice and Wells won the first 6-3, with Rice serving well, but Miller and Holley began to return better and saved a match point to win a second-set tie break, before taking the third 6-4.

Flynn then returned to the court with MeKeonis and beat Ron Corbett and Rebecca Doe in another three-setter, 2-6, 6-2, 6-0.

Corbett also lost the men’s closed singles final to Frings, 6-0, 6-2.
