Summer tournaments – round up!

As the summer grass season draws to a close, the club typically runs its annual ladies’, men’s and mixed tournaments.

The ladies’ tournament was first up in the summer diary and was held on a very hot Sunday in mid July. The number of pairs were smaller than usual but it still proved to be a very enjoyable round-robin tournament. The winner – preferring to stay out of the limelight – asked to remain anonymous in our coverage here,¬† wanting to shun any potential public fanfare (we do get lots at Littlehampton Tennis Club obs! :)….so afraid we’ll have to leave you here in suspense guessing….!

The men’s doubles tournament was held on Sunday 15th August with seven pairs. The format was seeded with a play¬†through and play back. This means the previous¬†winners for a bye in the first round and then played one of the winners from that round in the second. The final between¬†Stewart Lister and Karl Treagus against Cez Pahl and Curtis Wadey went to the wire with Stewart and Karl (only 17) winning¬†on a championship tie break.

The mixed tournament held on Sunday 29th August also consisted of seven pairs and a round robin format. It was a very close affair with the result having to be calculated with a play back of total games played. Julie Hoare and Martin Lury were the winners.
