Tennis Finals Day

Pimms & Tennis Ball

Hi Everyone

So here we are once again with the club gripped by final’s day fever.

The backdrop for this year’s final is not just a forecast of sunshine and perfect tennis weather but the old guard being rocked by the talent of our newcomers and teenagers!

Our club tournament shoe-ins are now having to work doubly hard to secure places in the semis and finals this year. That said, we do have James Stone, our current club champ, taking on his old adversary Kristian Hook in a repeat of last year’s final – what will Kristian bring to the party this year to overcome his rival? Of course, James first has to beat newcomer, left hander and third seed Stacy Hatziptrou in their semi later this week !

Then what about Juliette Lister? Yet to drop a set on her way to the women’s final, showing Radacanu that it’s not just her that can do it! She is playing the unseeded Sam Sumner in her first singles final.

Our teenagers have put on a fabulous display this year too with Luca Rushton and Dom Farrant reaching the men’s plate doubles final on opposing teams – the stand out story being the father and son duo Paul and Luca Rushton! What will (Will) our tennis chairman and his valiant partner Dom do to stop this family duo? We also have Harvey Steer competing in the Men’s Singles plate and potentially in the Mixed plate (still to play a tough semi finals against Janet Sutherland and her partner and newcomer Peter/Piotr Gonda).

Tracey Bedford continues to set the bar as high as ever as she cruises with her respective partners into 4 finals..! Go Tracey!

See the Order of Play below.

So, let’s make it a special day for all our finalists and head down to the club on Saturday to see some great tennis, have a FREE Pimms on offer and cheer on the competitors. It should be a fabulous day full of quality tennis and friendship building fun. The matches start at 9:30, BBQ open at lunchtime and Bar open all day.

If you haven’t got tickets for Wimbledon next week – join us instead, tennis will be the same quality and our prices a LOT cheaper!
