Club Tournament Winners 2017

The Club Tournament Finals were held on Sunday 17th September and an appreciative crowd of spectators enjoyed plenty of action on the courts and the wonderful supply of refreshments off the courts.
Thanks to Ted Ardley for the superb organisation of the event.  There were plenty of great matches played in the run up to the finals and it was brilliant to see lots of new participants (we have new Mens and Ladies champions) and one returning member playing for the first time in ten years (and going on to win in the Mens 60+ Doubles). 
We also had a full schedule of Junior finals from U8 to U18 - there was lots of talent on show and the benefits of Tom's caching was clearly evident with some superb stroke play and fantastic rallies. Eliot (U16 winner) and Ashlie (U18 winner) had a very full day as they both went on to compete in the Senior finals winining Mens Singles, Mens Doubles, Ladies Doubles and runner up in Ladies Singles.
Junior Champions - U8 Noah; U9 Billy; U10 Billy; U12 Dan; U14 Zak; U16 Eliot; Boys U18 Alex; Girls U18 Ashlie
Ladies Singles        Tash Kinsey beat Ashlie Night    6-1, 6-4
 Ashlie came back strongly in the second set but Tash maintained her control of the match to the end.

Ladies Doubles   Lynne Meredith & Ashlie Night beat Marie Dakin & Caroline Coppin  6-0, 6-2


The power and consistency of Lynne and Ashlie was too strong for Marie and Caroline who were below form on the da

Mens Doubles        Steve Ince and Eliot Morris beat Rob Dakin and Tom Meakin 6-1, 6-2


A much closer match than the score suggests but experience and youth  proved a winner.

 Mixed Doubles        Rob Dakin and Lynne Meredith beat Andy Binks and Marie Dakin 7-5, 3-6, 6-3


 What proved to be the closest and most entertaining match so far the family affair 'ding dong' could have gone either way.

Mens 60+ Doubles    Steve Ince and Alan Collins beat Tony Messiou and Dave Goodger 6-3, 6-0


 Cunning and guile was the match trend from both sides along with the years of tennis experience and again the score did not reflect the true competitive nature of the match.

Mens Singles            Eliot Morris beat Russell Dabb 7-6, 3-6, 6-4


 After a late start and a long three set closely fought match Eliot finally won through becoming one of the youngest winners of this event at the age of 15. A good few spectators stayed on to watch to the end on a very chilly evening.
