Haddenham Tennis Club Junior Club Championship Finals were held on Saturday 23rd September
We were very lucky with the weather as although a bit windy, it stayed dry and sunny apart from a few clouds.
The day was well supported by parents friends and family and Margaret Wilson provided refreshments and biscuits for competitors and supporters. Many thanks to Davina Norton for baking the cakes which were yummy!
The finals were run by Blaise Baheten the club Head Coach and presentations of medals, cups and medallions were made after each final by Bev Wilson, HTC Chair and Blaise.
