Elliott Wins Men's Singles, Again!

Men’s singles was always going to result in a winner for the Abdey family with son Elliott taking on father Pete.  Despite the family connection, this was a hugely competitive match with Pete pushing Elliott all the way in some lengthy and gruelling rallies.  Elliott took the first set with Pete almost snatching the second; however, Elliott held his nerve and came through 7-5 for a two sets victory, retaining his title from last year.

Elliott and Pete Win Men's Doubles

The men’s doubles final featured new members Dan Norton and Rob Cooper taking on father and son Elliott and Pete Abdey.  In a spectator pleasing match, there was a great display of doubles tennis with both teams showing impressive net play.  Elliott and Pete came through as eventual winners in a solid two set victory.

Pam Wins Women's Singles

The ladies singles involved both of last year’s finalists, Pamela Reid and Sarah Beaman, and was a display of hard hitting and impressive serving.  Pamela continued her many years’ unbeaten run to win her 8th ladies singles title, with a straight sets victory.

Nathan and Sue Ace Mixed Doubles

The mixed doubles final gave us the closest match of the day, with plenty of momentum changes between the pairs.  Established pairing Nathan Glynn and Sue Hoey faced new pairing Sarah Beaman with club coach Dave Rolls.  Nathan and Sue took the first set 7-5, before Dave and Sarah stormed back to take the second set 6-0.  A championship tiebreak was as close as it can get, with Nathan and Sue coming through 10-8 to claim the mixed doubles crown.

Callum Wins Junior Singles

Events kicked off with the junior final, with credit to coach Dave Rolls for bringing back the junior competition after a long absence.  Many young players entered the event, with the finalists coming through 8 matches to reach the final.  13 year old Callum Burke took on 12 year old Joseph Fryer in a very hard fought match.  At 1 set all, the match progressed to a tiebreak which Callum went on to win 7-3. Big congratulations to both boys for their attitude and sportsmanlike performances, and to overall winner Callum for a fantastic level of tennis!

Sarah and Sue are Women's Doubles Champions

The ladies doubles final could not be held on finals weekend and so a wet and windy day the following weekend saw the established pairing of Sue Hoey and Sarah Baker regain the trophy that they won 3 years ago with a straight sets win over Anna Fryer and Pamela Reid.

 

Many thanks to all the organisers and everyone who baked cakes for the day!
