The autumn term has seen pleasing participation levels in most venues throughout Cornwall.

Tennis is now an all year round sport with coaching and completion in place throughout the UK to compliment the sport.

We are lucky to have great facilities throughout much of the county with all weather courts and floodlights allowing club programmes such as Launceston and Wadebridge to flourish.

You cannot beat playing under a floodlite courts on a cold, crisp, clear Evening sky

In the autumn months. Players are very Lucky that the sport and facilities cater for such great occasions within are sport.

The most recent competition was held in October half term, the tournament was called clash of the club's, featuring  Host Wadebridge, visitors Launceston, Bude and Newquay.

The mourning started with players aged 10 and under playing in the mini tennis competition. The afternoon was the turn of the junior tennis players that saw a record junior boys entry with 20 players in attendance for this event.

The boys were a credit to all concerned as the weather took a turn for the worse with heavy rain and gusty winds arriving before the event concluded. Jacob Martin (Wadebridge) and Sam Jennings (Bude) had a final to decide the winner and had to start in such conditions and were keen to do so. Jacob Martin was the winner in a closely contested match.

Maisy Hunt (Wadebridge) took her first title in the girls and Wadebridge also were the clash of the club's champions.

A great event that has remained popular throughout 2019 will continue in 2020.

My many thanks to fellow coach Rachael Stacey who along with myself runs these events. My many thanks to Thomas Leach who along with myself is head coach at Just Tennis (Wadebridge), fellow coaches for Just Tennis Yvonne Arnott, Owen Young and the legend Howard Gunn.
