It was a perfect day for the Club’s annual junior/senior tournament which took place on Sunday, writes Kate Truman.

With many of the club’s older juniors now hitting the ball better than some of the adults, a great afternoon of competitive tennis was witnessed!

Nine pairs competed in a round-robin contest for the title and, following a close fought battle between sibling rivals Molly and Jess Wiltshire and their respective partners, Jed Ionov-Flint and Debbie Snelgrove, it was Molly and Jed who eventually triumphed - congratulations!

The day finished with a well-earned cold drink from the bar and a very enjoyable barbecue.

It’s fantastic to see such a lively and talented junior section thriving at the club, with many of the youngsters now representing the club in adult league matches.
