The boys Road to Wimbledon competition was played on Friday 31st May. Seven eligible contenders took part in a round robin singles timed tournament. Matches got off to a good start but a few lessons were learnt from playing …one, listen to your parents advice …don’t leave tennis balls lying around the baseline , you may have an accident ….and only 5 mins later a sprained ankle , and one retired competitor . Our next casualty pulled a calf muscle , with 2 retired players only 5 remained . Close matches and great rallies and all being played in a good spirit.
The top 2 players in the round robin played in the boy’s final . This was between Nick Beale and John MacGregor. A set to decide the winner and after some excellent rallies and points , Nick came out victorious beating his best mate John 6-2. Nick will now represent Risborough tennis club at the County Finals being played at the Bucks Indoor centre w/e 13/14th July .
Thank you to everyone who played . All the boys made is a very enjoyable competition to supervise and they all played really well.
Winner – Nick Beale
R/Up – John MacGregor
3rd Place – Henry Yeoman
4th Place – George Caille
5th Place – Ben Hood
