Avenue Internal Tournament October 18/19

Avenue had a festival of tennis over the weekend of 18/19 October for the junior players at the club. A total of 26 players took part in match-play and tournaments.

A couple of our mini red (under 8) players got their first taste of competitive tennis with some matches played on a shorter court and with a slower/ low bouncing ball. It was great to see the players learning how to score themselves and develop good sportsmanship.

In the early afternoon there was the first tournament of the day for our mini orange (9 and under) players. 8 players battled it out on the courts for 3 hours with Theo Clarke emerging as the eventual winner. The standard of play was excellent from all players and everyone left with a smile on their face.

YOUNG PLAYERS

Mini Green (10 and under) was up next for another 8 players. The standard was exceptional from all the young players which cumulated in an extremely emotional final between Josh Proctor and Orange champion Theo Clarke. Every game seemed to go to deuce and the 4 games to love score line did not do justice to the two gladiator, but running on empty Theo (pictured above) was crowned green ball king.

Super Sunday meant more tennis and our under 14s and under 18s battling it out in match play sessions. Head Coach Jonny Horn was even stretched by some of the Under 18 players with narrow victories. I don’t think it will be long until the coach is scalped by the teenagers.
