Vinny thanked Jessica Griffiths for her help in running the competition and Kevin Burrow for helping with the refereeing.

In the afternoon, the club ran its first Mini Orange tournament with five players, including Megan Rundle. The competition was won by Harry Burrow, who played some great tennis and served very well.
