The south coast rivalry: Who comes out on top?

The cities of Portsmouth and Southampton have shared a rivalry for well over a hundred years.

It is thought that following the sinking of the Titanic, Southampton's dockers refused to crew its sister ship the Olympic due to a lack of lifeboats. Portsmouth's dockers angered their Southampton counterparts by agreeing to crew the ship themselves which is believed to have started the beginning of a fierce rivalry.

While the two city's football teams have taken on the mantle of the rivalry more recently, here at Local Tennis Leagues, we've started to see a friendly rivalry develop between the two cities tennis players!
