Scorching heat and a match to rival the sun, the underdogs come through in this one, very tense towards the end 😊

Battle of the Sexes – after a dogged 1st set, the women turned the screw in the second winning 6-0 in under 12 minutes!

The form book went out the window with the Uwins’s stealing it here. The last set will be remembered for an epic rally which paved the way for the Uwins clan.

Runner: up Nick Flynn
Score: 6-2 6-1
Nick Battled really hard but was up against the Club Champion who made very few mistakes
