Junior Tennis - End of Season Events and Tournaments

Junior Tennis - End of Season Events and Tournaments

Main Image

Nearly 50 children aged 4 - 10 participated in a 'mini' tennis end of season fun event over the weekend of 5th September. The following weekend over 30 older players aged 10-18 competed in an end of season tournament. The results (and photographs of the winners) are shown below. This was a great turn-out considering we clashed with football, hockey and other sporting activities! We were lucky with the weather - the sun shone on both days. We look forward to some good autumn tennis with more sun!

Round robin matches were followed by knock-out play, and when the boys and girls were not playing their round-robin matches, they practiced with the ball machine - which is up and working......and also competed in a speed-gun contest - which as ever was very competitive. "One more serve" was the refrain heard more than once!

Some very closely fought matches were played in all of the age groups - long rallies, tie breaks and lots of good sportsmanship! The winners were as follows:

Under 13 Girls:

  • Winner - Julie Bonnet Durville
  • Runner-up - Lily Holmes
  • Fastest serve - Lily Holmes (52 mph)

Jack, Lily, Julie and Stuart

Under 13 Boys:

  • Winner - Roman Lanzbergin
  • Runner-up - Seb Fishwick
  • Fastest serve - Max Dickov (66 mph)
Jack, Roman, Seb and Stuart  

Under 18 Girls:

  • Winner - Vienna Simic
  • Runner-up - Charlotte Thackwray
  • Fastest serve - Vienna Simic (60 mph)

Jack, Charlotte, Vienna and Stuart

Under 18 Boys:

  • Winner - Jack Ronnie
  • Runner-up - Chris Sibbett
  • Fastest serve - Freddie Nowell (92 mph)

Chris, Stuart, Jack and Jack

 

....and a gaggle of others boys hit mid to high eighties on the speed gun test....!!

And Jack Helliar had to have a go; he hit 100 mph - but unfortunately is out of the age group!!
