The day started early with the Women’s Doubles Final, in which Natalie Wakefield & Sasha Reed won 6-2 6-4 against Pam Saker & Naomi Ashcroft. In the Women’s Singles Final, Natalie Wakefield won 6-0, 6-1 against Emma Hewes.

Closing out the day was the Men’s Singles Final, which produced a thrilling contest between Max Miles-Thomas and Mike Lynch. After nearly two hours, Max Miles-Thomas eventually prevailed- 6-2 1-6 7-6 (7-5 in the deciding tie-break) and in doing so, retained the trophy.

Speaking after the tournament, organiser and Head Coach Tom Scott said, “It is fantastic to see so many members finally being able to socialise together at the club watching what was exceptional tennis. The whole competition has been played at a high level. Aside from the epic Men’s final, it is great to see the depth and level of the women’s tennis growing” Club Chairman Colin Main added, “I would like to thank all who competed this year, the social committee and especially Tom Scott and his wife Jess for organising the day.”
