Junior Christmas Tournament
Avenue Tennis held their first internal Junior Christmas Tournament last month.
Day 1 saw the younger end of competitors with the 8 and under (Red 1 and Red 2) and 9 and under (Orange) events taking place. Matches started at midday with players taking to the courts ready to play.
Results were coming in as the competition went on and there were some fantastic points from all players with some very close results.
At the end of day 1 :
• The 8 and under Red 2 winner was Austin Anderson with runner-up Isabelle Lamb.
• The 8 and under Red 1 winner was Bivesh Rai with runner-up Alexandra Viksnaityte.
• The 9 and under Orange winner was Zachary Lamb with runner-up Kenneth-George Ekontang.
Day 2 saw the older end of competitors with the 10 and under (Green) and 18 and under (Junior) events taking place. First up was the 10 and under (Green) event. As the competition went on, there were some amazing points from all players.
- The 10 and under Green winner was Zachary Lamb with runner-up Woody Jarvis.
- Up next was the 18 and under (Junior) event. This was the busiest event of the competition. With matches going on until the evening, players were tiring but playing exceptionally well.
- The 18 and under Junior winner was Christopher Hookway with runner-up Alex Lee.
All winners received a trophy, and all participants received a small prize as well. With this being the first competition for most players, the competition was a fun and enjoyable experience. The competition was also very well organised by our coach Graham Hunt.
There was some great feedback from the parents who watched, with players and parents asking when the next competition would be. From 1st May to 9th September 2018 Avenue Tennis will be running their Club Championships with 12 events including singles and doubles. Further information to follow.
