Team VRA dominated the men’s double. Winners of the VRA team included Daniel Aggrey/Paa Grant, Nii Lokko/Akim, Alfred Okine/Cyril Bansah and Johnny Bravo/Ernest Okyere. The Tulip Winners were Eli Markham and Sampson Sayibu.
The Ladies singles saw a win for both teams with Shanon Lamptey (VRA) and Miro Mitti (Tulip) edging past their opponents in a fierce contest amidst cheers from the visiting team and home crowd.
