Nicky Wallace and Robin Jamieson were crowned North Otago tennis champions over the weekend.

It had been seven years since Wallace last won the women’s singles title, but the 27-year-old produced dominant performances to win all three North Otago Closed events she entered this year, also claiming women’s and mixed doubles titles.
