Weston Tennis Club held a fun tournament for two age groups which was well attended by family and club members.

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.

The Under-10s event was structured in a round-robin format. There were some strongly contested games with the top two players from each group going through to the semi-finals.

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.

The club is holding a series of fun days for children aged between five and 16 throughout the school holidays on July 25 and 27 and August 8, 10, 22 and 24 each from 9am to 1pm.
