Sidmouth Tennis Club ran the first of its two Quorn Family Tennis events on Sunday, writes Kate Truman.

The competition was organised as part of the national Quorn Family Tennis Cup, a doubles tournament where participating teams are made up of one child and an adult family member, the idea being to get families involved in tennis in a fun and informal way. Sunday’s competition was for the mini-red group, so all children competing with an adult family member were under the age of 11yrs.

It was a beautiful day and well attended with 11 pairs competing for the title. Great fun was had by all and it was fantastic to see the support given by the adults to their younger team members.

Elina Scorey and Sabina Scorey were overall winners of the event and will go onto play in a national event at one of the ATP/WTA events this summer! Oliver and Rob Smith were the runners up.

Club coaches Sue Wiltshire and Daryl Bass are organising another Quorn Family Tennis event on Sunday, September 11, this time for yellow ball juniors and an adult family member.

Participating juniors must have been born between September 1, 1997 to 31 August 2005 (11-17) and play with an adult family member (parent, carer, guardian, step parent, co-parent, uncle, auntie, sibling or grandparent) born August 31, 1997 or earlier. Any family teams interested in taking part should contact club coach Sue Wiltshire on 07402 047011 or email her at
