Handicap Final 2016

Saturday was a great day at the club with the Tennis Mixed Singles Handicap finals taking place.

Firstly,  Head Coach Rhys Morgan was against Coach Billy Barclay in the Main Draw final. The handicap system meant Rhys had to give Billy an 8 point head start in each set. Both players played some excellent tennis in the match with Rhys eventually coming out on top in 3 sets 21-12 9-21 21-11.

The second match was the Consolation Draw final which was contested between Aaron Trott and Oskar Gregory. Both players had excellent wins in their respective semi-finals to reach this stage of the competition. Oskar proved to be too strong for Aaron in the final winning in straight sets 21-8 21-13. This was a great achievement for Oskar – who was the youngest player in the draw.

A big shout out to Chair Umpire Tom Griffiths who did an excellent job umpiring the matches. Also a huge thanks to all of the spectators who came along to watch the matches.

Quorn Family Tennis Cup

There was an excellent turnout of 14 children and their parents for the Quorn Family Tennis Cup on Sunday 3rd May. All of the players had a great time playing with some fantastic matches taking place throughout the competition.


The competition started with a round robin format with doubles teams playing against all of the other pairs within their group. The winner of each group and best 2nd place pair all progressed to the Semi-Finals. In the first Semi-final Lewis and Mark were up against Merlin and Rio – in an excellent match Lewis and Mark came through to book their place in the final. In the second Semi-final Tilly and Mark played Rocco and Becky – in a nail-biting match Rocco and Becky won on a sudden death point 10-9 to reach the final. With lots of people watching there were some amazing rallies in the final – Rocco and Becky both played really well to win 10-6 in the final.

After all of the matches had finished all of the children were presented with a certificate. Lewis and Mark won some grips and a drawstring bag for finishing runners-up. Rocco and Becky won some grips and a tennis cap, plus an invitation to go and play at one of the British Tennis Summer Grass Court events, where they will play some of the other winners from across the UK and get the chance to watch some professional tennis.
