The annual adult and junior tournament at Woodland Lawn Tennis Club proved to be as popular as ever.

THE annual adult and junior tournament at Woodland Lawn Tennis Club proved to be as popular as ever this year, despite the icy winds and occasional snow flurry.

Seven pairs turned out to play a round robin of doubles matches. Most of the juniors were partnered by a parent and it was difficult to determine who was having the most fun.

The day was characterised by many close matches and only four games separated the top three pairs at the close of the tournament. In the end, Stephanie Buckingham, partnered by her dad, Peter, won the trophy. Second place was keenly contested as Andrew Georgiou and dad, Chris, tied with Lydia Buckingham and her mum, Annie for second place.

A tie break was played and Andrew and Chris took an early lead to go 4-0 up, but Lydia and Annie fought back to level the score. However, Andrew and Chris went on to win the tie break and the runners-up shield.

Club secretary, Annie Buckingham, was delighted with the day. She said: “It’s always great to get the parents on the tennis court. It gives the juniors a chance to show off what they can do and how much they’ve improved.”
