The juniors at Woodland Tennis Club have been kept busy with several events at the club.

WOODLAND Lawn Tennis Club has been busy with junior activities this summer.

First of all, the four-day summer coaching course took place, with 32 children taking advantage of the sessions.

It was tournament day next as the club’s annual junior singles competition took place, with the younger girls taking part in their own round-robin competition.

Eventually, Noa Mamic beat Scarlett Johannsen in a close final which saw one rally of 16 shots. Katy Brown and Amelia Briffitt enjoyed a similarly close consolation final, which was played in good humour.

In the boy’s draw, 12 took part in an initial round-robin event and the top eight went into the quarter-finals. After two tense semi-finals, Oliver Fuller and Tom Deverson qualified for the final.

The last of the junior events was a senior and junior tournament, where each junior was paired up with a senior. The doubles was fast paced and the seniors were impressed by the quality of the junior’s play, as Chris Bond and Tom Deverson emerged the eventual winners.
