Junior Club Tournament 2022
Fri, 03 Jun 2022 00:00
Weston Tennis Club held a junior tournament, kindly sponsored by Christopher's House of Chocolates, with groups of young players battling it out in three separate events.
The Under 10s event was played in a round-robin format and there were some exciting matches throughout. The much improved Yuna Byron won 4 out of her 5 matches to earn her place in the semi-finals. Joe Cunningham, Lennox Byron and the athletic Michael Opogah played some outstanding tennis to claim the other semi-final spots.
Both semi-finals were well contested but it was Yuna and Opogah who qualified for the final. The final contained some well conducted points with both players moving each other around in long baseline rallies. In the end it was Opogah who had the edge winning 10-3 to claim victory.
The Under 14s event was also played in a round-robin format. All six contestants played their parts with some outstanding displays. Alec Doyle and Julia Maciejczyk showed some lovely touches throughout their matches, which were played in warm sunshine. Another player to impress was the hard hitting Marcus Llewellyn who stormed into the final without dropping a game. Joining him in the final, having played some exciting matches, was Maciejczyk. A special mention must be made of Jin Hau Chong who caught the eye with some hard hit forehand winners. The final had a close start before Llewellyn took control and came through to win the match 6-1 and secure the title.
The Under 18s event was a best of three sets match featuring Ben Corlett and Jack Spiers. Both players started nervously before the talented Spiers began to get on top taking the first set 6-1. Corlet rallied hard but in vain as the left handed Spiers powered to victory 6-1, 6-0 in 45 minutes.
All those who took part contributed to a great afternoon of tennis, while Weston were very grateful to their sponsor, Christopher Hawkins, Master Chocolatier, based at 37 Meadow Street, for his generous support.
