Groups of young players from Weston Tennis Club battled it out in two separate events in a fun, but competitive tournament which was well attended by family and club members.

One semi final saw Henry Bush Evans beat the fast improving Freddie Simmonds 10-8. In the other semi-final Louie Bush Evans held off a strong challenge from Marcus Llewellyn. Louie went through to win the final 10-6.
In the Under-16s event there were again two groups of four in a round-robin format and there were some strong performances in which two pairs from each group prevailed.
The semi-finals were contested by Ben Insley, Jonathan Evans, Oscar Byles and the impressive 11-year-old Maddox Gould. Jonathan’s big serving saw him go through against the battling Oscar 6-2.
In the other semi, the hard-hitting Maddox beat the determined Ben Insley 6-1. In the final it was Maddox who won with some awesome tennis defeating Jonathan 6-2 in a hard fought match.
