The men’s final was contested by head coach and reigning champion Jamie Allen, and 2010 champion Jon Parsons.
Jamie got off to a good start playing some controlled base line tennis and won the first set 6-0. Jon put up a brave fight in the second set, hitting some big forehand winners but was unable to break Jamie’s dominance and the latter took the set 6-1 for a convincing victory.
The women’s doubles was won by Maya Maxwell and Jenny Amaru, who defeated Jayne Smith and Christine Sully 7-5, 4-6, 6-2 in an entertaining encounter. The men’s doubles winners were Jamie Allen and Mike Greedy who beat the defending champions Dean Cope and Toby Siddall.
An excellent first set, in which the tide turned one way and then the other, resulted in Dean and Toby clinching it 6-4. However, in the second set, Jamie and Mike began to get on top and they eventually recorded a 4-6, 6-1, 6-1 victory.
In the mixed doubles, Maya and Dean beat Suzanne Taylor and her son Lewis 6-1, 6-3.
