Annual Club Championships

The Men’s and Ladies Singles Finals were played last Saturday before a big crowd and after two close matches, our champions from last year were victorious again.

In the Ladies singles Sofie Sullivan came from behind to defeat Emily Peake in three long sets.  This was a very close final and both ladies deserved to win but Sofie prevailed with her never say die attitude.Emily was very brave and gracious in defeat .Congratulations to both ladies.

Andrew Riminton then played Sean White in the Men’s Final and although Andrew won in straight sets there were some great rallies and close games. Both players gave their all and the crowd saw some great tennis. Andrew is warming up for The Seaside Classic so we all wish him the best there.  Whereas Sean will be cooling off skiing in Japan over Christmas.

The Ladies Doubles Final was played later in the day and Sofie Sullivan combined with Julia Gunn to again defeat Emily Peake and Carolina Pena y Lillo 7-5 7-6  in another close match.

The Mens Doubles final was played a few weeks ago and Todd Maloney and Harry Faeste defeated Craig Withell and Richard Steeds.

We still have the A Men’s Singles and Doubles finals to be played this Saturday.
