This year’s Championship final was played recently at Castle Hill Tennis Club. It was the culmination of over 100 matches played over the course of the summer which kicked off the grass court season back in May.

Each of the 13 players who entered the competition had to play each other once in a league and the top 4 then played in semi-finals to determine the finalists. The remaining 9 players are entered into the Philippa Francis Plate.

The Championship Finalists were Keith Nuttal and Mick Lench. It was an enthralling match with both players chasing down shots that they had no right to get back. Lench came out the eventual winner 6-3, 6-4, coming back from 0-2 in the second set. The court was hard and had a few surprise bounces but overall it played well.
