Vets Finals / Mixed Doubles Handicap Final 2018

Back in the middle of September we held the finals of the various Veterans Club Competitions as well as the final of the Mixed Doubles Handicap (played the following day). These finals were very much a Tournament Committee affair as all bar one match featured at least one member of the Tournament Committee.


The results from these matches were :


Men’s Veterans Singles  —  Paul Elliott bt Graeme Rawlings  6-4, 3-6, 7-5


Ladies’ Veterans Singles —  Nina Coulthard bt Bid Newport  6-0, 3-6, 6-2


Men’s Veterans Doubles  —  Graeme Rawlings & Selwyn Jones bt Paul Elliott & Simon Tarrel  6-0, 7-5


Ladies’ Veterans Doubles  —  Julie Moore & Karen Moloney bt Carey Adams & Eugenia Williams  6-4, 7-6


Mixed Veterans Doubles  —  Graeme Rawlings & Sharon Stevens bt Darius Khatibi & Julie Moore  6-3, 7-6


Mixed Doubles Handicap  —  Trevor Homer & Karen Moloney bt Darius Khatibi & Isobel Bonning  6-4, 6-4


Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to everyone who entered the various competitions. On the day there was tremendous support from relatives and friends of the finalists and from members of the Club. Thank you to everyone who provided food to sustain everyone through a long afternoon of tennis and to those who served behind the bar and helped to clean up the Clubhouse afterwards.



Junior Finals


A couple of weeks after the Adult finals, it was the turn our Junior members to show what they could do with the finals of the Junior Club Competitions. We had a great entry from across the coaching groups but unsurprisingly all the finalists came from coaching Group 5 (the top group). The standard of play from all the finalists was very high and is a testament to work which Mike Matthews has done with this crop of Juniors over many years and which Jack Woollcott and his coaching team have now taken on.


The results from these matches were :


Boys’ Singles  —  Lewis Scarfe bt Joe Hamley  6-3, 6-1


Girls’ Singles  —  Isobel Bonning bt Molly Moloney  6-2, 6-5


Boys’ Doubles  —  Joe Hamley & Eoin Coughlan bt Nick Norman & Lewis Scarfe  3-6, 6-5, 12-10


Girls’ Doubles  —  Mia Ali & Jada Ali bt Isobel Bonning & Molly Moloney  4-6, 6-2, 10-4


Mixed Doubles  —  Eoin Coughlan & Molly Moloney bt Nick Norman & Isobel Bonning 6-2, 6-2


Congratulations to all the winners and well done to all the players for demonstrating to those watching and supporting what talent we have at the Club. Thank you to George Fry and Anthony Stevens for umpiring all of the finals and to everyone who came to watch. A big thank you also to those that provided food on the day – this was much needed.
