The Alastair Wright Cup and The Lucy Beesley Shield
The Alastair Wright Cup
The Alastair Wright Cup is in memory of Alastair Wright, a very talented young tennis player who sadly died, aged 18, after losing his life to leukaemia.
Alastair was a member at Bangor Tennis Club and had represented North Wales at several international tennis tournaments. It is presented by Alastair's parents, Mary & David.
In 2019 The Alastair Wright Cup was awarded to Simon Tint, a very promising, junior member of Bangor Tennis Club.
The Lucy Beesley Shield
The Lucy Beesley Shield is played annually and takes the form of an American Tournament between Bangor Tennis Club and the University.
It is held in memory of Lucy Beesley, a past member of Bangor Tennis Club as well as Bangor University Club, who sadly lost her life to a brain tumour in March 2017, aged 25. All monies raised on the day are donated to one of the cancer related charities which Lucy supported.
It is a super, fun afternoon played in great spirit, although it can’t be denied that there is a marked element of underlying competitiveness!
