Perran Tennis Junior Summer Holiday Number 6
In rather blustery conditions the bunting was hoisted for the final junior tournament of the summer series. The sixth event of the holidays saw over 40 players and spectators attend the grass courts at Perran Tennis for an afternoon of mixed doubles and singles. As usual the orange ball and the yellow ball were keenly contested. Seven rounds were completed and produced a very closely fought event overall.
Boys Orange Ball
In joint third place with 34 points were Jamie Smeadon and Jack Commons. There was also a tie for first place between Matthew Upton and Alfie King both scoring 35 points each. A tie-break was played. Alfie eventually came through by 7 points to 4 to take the winners medal.
Girls Orange Ball
Two girls tied for the second place slot with 34 points. Lydia Hawken and Willow Thomson both executing some nice shots. However the overall medal winner was Katie Humphreys with a score of 35 ½ points.
Mixed Yellow Ball
Rebe Winn was placed third with 29 points. The runner-up was Naomi Hart who scored 30 points, but the overall winner and medallist was Rowan Payne. This was a first win for Rowan.
