The Under-18s tournament followed with some high calibre tennis. The winner was Lewis Taylor and the runner-up Daniel Gadsby.
Club chairman, Bob Wilson, told the Mercury: “We are grateful to Mercedes-Benz of WsM for their generous funding of our junior section.

Trophies were presented by Caroline Yard of Mercedes-Benz, who said: “It has been a wonderful day representing Mercedes-Benz at Weston Tennis Club’s junior event. Mercedes-Benz is delighted to be associated with the club’s junior development programme and today shows the results of our continued support.”
