Finals Success

Our Club Finals took place on 18th July. It was wonderful to see so many there supporting the players and the bar! Thank you to everyone who brought along food to share. It made it a really good day.

Congratulations to all our finalists and winners, but a special mention must go to Sam Littleford who achieved the treble by clinching the Men’s Singles, Men’s Doubles (with Greg Kraushar) and Mixed Doubles (with Sue Littleford) titles.

All results are available on our website page and also our Facebook page.

‘Lofty Lofts’ Open Tennis Tournament

Congratulations also go to Aran Mustafa, who took the Men’s Singles Title in the recent open tournament held at the club. It was great to have a home grown winner. Two of our junior members also performed well. Well done to Kevin Benedict who reached the final in his first tournament and to Thomas Butler who won the consolation event in his age group.
