And Higgings said: "I'm very proud of Gidea Park's efforts and members have enjoyed many exciting matches over the past few months.

"Next year will be a challenging task, competing against some professional players such as Davis Cup, current or ex-Wimbledon players, but it will be a great spectacle and we look forward to compete."
