Woodland Tennis Club held a junior doubles tournament at the headquarters in Weston.

THE juniors at Woodland Lawn Tennis Club, Weston, enjoyed a day of competition when they took part in a doubles tournament.

The whole day was organised by four of the juniors, Jonathan Clarkson, Lydia Buckingham, Callum Clemons and Stephie Buckingham, who are all working towards their LTA tennis leaders’ qualification.

The first eight rounds took the format of a round robin after which the top eight scoring juniors went through to the semi-final play-off.

The first semi-final saw Tom Deverson partnered by Lydia Buckingham, taking on Louis Glimstead and Josh Deverson. Tom and Lydia soon got into their stride and their consistent play resulted in a decisive victory.

The second semi was a much closer affair, going to a tie break. Michael Gray and Daniel Davies took an early lead over Alex Price and Stan Pincott, but Alex and Stan’s determination paid off and they managed to edge a win.

The final saw some impressive play by Tom and Lydia. The power of Tom plus the accuracy of Lydia proved too much for Alex and Stan. They did not drop a game and won the title and the cup.
