BUSINESS people in Huddersfield took time out from the office to compete in a tennis tournament.

Law firm Armitage Sykes organised the event, which took place close to its New North Road premises at Huddersfield Lawn Tennis and Squash Club.

The doubles tournament used both indoor and outdoor courts and concluded with a prize-giving ceremony and a buffet.

Between games, competitors could also try their hand at Padel tennis, a game popular in Spain and South America which is a fast-paced combination of tennis, squash and racquetball played on an enclosed court about a third the size of a tennis court.
