Mini tournament beats the weather
CHEDDAR Tennis Club hosted a successful mini orange tournament for under nines just before the severe weather set in.
Five players from Winscombe, Wells and Burnham took part in the round robin event, which was organised by club coach Stephen Pearce.
After some close matches, top seed Oliver Punt of Burnham emerged unbeaten as the winner, with Luke Collier and William Ford, both from Winscombe, second and third respectively. All the players received certificates and medals.
Cheddar’s junior coaching is continuing through the winter with mini tennis red and orange after school on Fridays now taking place indoors at Cheddar First School, to avoid any cancellations. Mini green and yellow ball tennis is on the club’s courts at Sharpham Road playing fields.
On the senior side, Cheddar’s players have achieved good success to date in the North Somerset Winter League. The A team lies third in Division 2, having beaten Bridgwater B, Woodlands B and Clevedon B. The B team is currently fifth in Division 4, with wins over Avenue B and Backwell A, and the C team is top of Division 7, having beaten Wrington B, Avenue C, Taunton C and Bridgwater D.
