The club’s annual finals day took place on Saturday 8th September at 9.30am. Unfortunately it got off to a shaky start after the first match, the ladies doubles was called to a halt after only two minutes of play when Angela Cranston couldn’t move due to a suspected rupture in her heel. With play abandoned, Christine Bolton and Janet Clarke (also last year’s ladies doubles winners) therefore took the title. We wish Angela a speedy recovery.
Ed Ibrahim, new to the tournament, swooped the men’s singles title from a former title winner, Guillaume Martin and Ed also won the mixed doubles title with partner Suzie Bower.
Alice Briggs retained her singles title against 17-year-old Carys Evans who put up a good fight only losing 6-3, 6-4. Peter Barkway and Therese Cooklin beat Jane Clatworthy and Andrew Lucas in a 2 1/4 hour match with the only three set final of the day. Charlie Phelps and Mike Bird beat Guillaume Martin and Richard Cranston.
