The second of the club’s tournament finals took place last weekend and the results are below.
Veterans Men’s Singles – Sam Doyle beat Paul Seaney 6-1, 6-1.
Open Mixed Doubles – Frankie Bedi & Nic Martin beat Penny Allen & Kane Bolton 6-4, 6-2
Veterans Ladies’ Doubles – Frankie Bedi & Katarina Bunce beat Lauraine Levett & Pauline Uwins 6-0, 6-0
Open Men’s Doubles Plate – Jonathan Daws & Gary Clements beat Jeff Howe & Ian McIlrath 6-3, 6-3
Open Men’s Singles Plate – Tom Murrell beat Colin Stuart 6-0, 3-6, 6-4
This was the most tense finals of the weekend – it could have gone either way in the third set after a comeback by Colin when 5-1 down in the third. Tom eventually held out to win.
The Veterans Mixed Doubles final was not played due to both sets of semi-finalists on the lower half of the draw not being available. The trophy will therefore be awarded to the other finalists Bunny Smith & Jim Kitchen.
Many thanks to Tournament Organisers Gary Clements & Paul Snell; umpires Elias, Roy & Freddie; and of course club President Jill Stanton for the presentations.
Our last 2018 Tournament Finals weekend will take place on 15th/16th September – see details on our tournaments page.
