The third Richard Black Cup - the Ladies team championships - took place at Eton yesterday, with the Olavians emerging triumphant in a thrilling final over defending champions the EFA by the narrowest of margins at the end of a terrific day's Fives featuring six teams, 40 players, old and new faces and countless close and exciting matches.

Gareth Hoskins reports:
The second ever Richard Black Cup took place at Eton on Sunday, with five teams gracing the courts and producing a veritable feast of Fives. The entry for this ladies Fives team competition was slightly disappointing, a combination of school holidays, university vacations and Mother's Day preventing a number of potential teams from raising enough players to enter. A change of date next year will hopefully produce a larger entry as this exciting competition begins to establish itself in the Fives calendar.
