Tue, 10 Sep 2019 00:00
A superb afternoon of top class competitive tennis saw competitors for Pewsey and further afield play their way through a group stage before entering a knock-out stage, ensuring that there was lots of tennis played – all superbly managed by club president Amanda Foxton.
RESULTS - Pewsey pair Sarah Lucas and Christian Blair triumphed in a hard fought final against visitors Louise and Jeremy Du Toit. This is the first time in recent years that a Pewsey Pair has won the Pewsey mixed open trophy so well done Sarah and Christian! Pewsey pair Hannah Booth and Chris Roberts also took third place honours in an enjoyable play-off tussle with last year’s champions Rhae McCartney and Andy Dickinson. The Plate final was an all Pewsey affair between Mary Martinsen and David Nicholls and Amanda Hampson and Matthew Popham who came out on top. (See Photos)
