Matthias won all 6 of his matches against 4 players from within the club and 2 from other clubs. Charlie Jackson, Presha Kumar, James Coogan all tied for 2nd place with 4 wins each, with other players Tom Spinks, Josh Chenylle-Proctor and Dylan Webb completing the other entrants. Duddy said the standard was very good and thought that all the kids did very well in fairly windy conditions; Dylan Webb won the prize for best Sportsman on the day. Later that afternoon Mason Parker beat Ellie May Vohra in the Green Ball event (6v3, 6v0) in a very well contested event which saw Mason taking control of the match with some powerful forehands and accurate serving; although Ellie May played some very good tactical points moving Mason out of position several times before finishing the points off. Junior Tournaments will return to the club on 13th Feb 2012.
