Eleven junior players took part in the Mini Red tournament at LWTC on 26th October. Some children were playing in their first ever tennis tournament in what turned out to be very windy conditions but most seemed to enjoy their morning! There were some really close matches played and the winner of Box A was Ben Lloyd with Alex Raven coming a close second. In Box B, Dougie Allison was the winner as he won all the matches that he played.
Well done to all the children who took part (Ben Lloyd, Alex Raven, Evie Cope, Freddie Basil, Ophelia Spracklen, Dougie Allison, Emma Francis, Millie Sutcliffe, Imogen Curtis, Toby Dawson and William Rushton). Thanks also to Ed Duncan and to all the parents who helped with scoring.
U12/U14 LWTC Tournament, Thursday 28th October
We had a great turn out of players for the U12/U14 events that took place at LWTC on 28th October with a lively bunch of kids enjoying a fun morning of good tennis! Ed Duncan did a fantastic job of keeping track of all the different boxes and managed to get 27 matches started and finished on time during the event! These were the key results for each group:
Congratulations to Chris Francis who won this event and was unbeaten in his 3 matches. Jake Allison was runner up with 2 wins.
There were two boxes played in the U12 boys event and Edward Beccle came out on top in Box A winning all of his box matches with Woody Cope in second place. Alex Alder topped Box B also winning all his box matches including a very tight match that went to a tie break against Ciaran Walsh. In a hard hitting final, Edward Beccle beat Alex Alder 4-1 and was the overall U12 Boys winner.
Brydie Stacey was the winner of the girls event having won all four of her matches and Lucy Thomas was runner up with three wins from her four matches. It was great to see so many girls playing at this event. Well done to all the girls!
