Tennis Club competition Finals Day

 It was a great day for the tennis club competition 2022. The sun was shining and the rain stayed away. There were some epic matches with tie breaks in almost every final and some real slogged out rallies. 

Special mention to the ladies doubles competition which took 3 hours and and 13 nail biting tie break points to decide the winners!!!

Unfortunately due to injury the Ladies Singles could not take place on the day. This will be played at a later date, and details of the date will be circulated once arranged.

All in all a fantastic day and thanks to everyone for taking part – after all that’s the main point of the Club.

The finalists are listed below along with the winners. Well done to all.

Hope everyone takes part next year.
