Penallt Tennis Club Knockout Tournaments 2019

Penallt tennis club has been playing their annual knockout doubles tournaments over the last two weekends.

The weather had its moments and on each weekend the semi-finals were played in the rain but the hardy players battled on.

A large crowd watched the finals each Sunday afternoon and the sun did shine from time to time.

The mixed competition was played over the first weekend and there was a large entry. There were a number of closely fought first round matches, one particularly close one was between David & Arianna Guppy and James Wright and Caroline Peters with David & Arianna winning in three sets.  James & Bozena Tytko won the plate competition, they played Alison O'Doherty and Robbie Mills in the final.  The final of the main competition was between Rob Prewitt and Ginny Higgins and Josh Griffiths and Karen Rollings. The winners for the first time were Josh & Karen.

The ladies doubles also had some close matches. In the first round, Sue Jenkins and Rachel Ryder had a lengthy and close match against Angela Seymour and Nicky Amery with Sue & Rachel winning in three sets.

Angela & Nicky then had another close match against Sally Williams and Emma Morgan in the plate competition with Sally & Emma winning 7.5. 6.4.  Sally and Emma then played Alison O'Doherty and Katie Farrington in the final. Sally & Emma were the eventual winners.

The final of the main competition was a hard-fought contest between Cheryl Mordecai and Steph Howells and Ginny Higgins and Nicky Hutchings. There were many exciting rallies which were much enjoyed by the spectators.  Steph & Cheryl came through as the winners.

In the men's doubles, the final of the plate was between Frank MacDermot and Neil O'Doherty and Henry Francis and Chris Comins. Frank & Neil were the winners. The final of the main competition produced a three-set finale.

The singles competition had a different format this year. They will be ongoing over the summer with the finals in early September.

Penallt Tennis Junior Tournament 2019

The juniors had a very hot morning for their tournaments so frequent water breaks were needed.

The first two groups showed off their tennis skills doing tennis related activities including forehands and backhands.

Playing in the first group were Oliver Lee, Megan Adams, Samuel White, George Turner and Lukas Hicks.
The second group also added rallies to their tennis skills. The players were Olivia Mc Cleary, Hattie Ryder, Emma Nicholls, Emily Sanger and Lily Peters.

The eldest group had a round-robin American style tournament with each youngster partnering and playing against everyone else.

The players were Kit Newland, Fran Lucas, Zach Mason, Lana Price, Rufus Payne, Isabel Coutts, Dylan Van Wyk, Coco Payne and Drew White.

After many excellent rallies and five hot rounds, the final scores were added up.

Rufus Payne finished first and won the cup. Lana Price and Kit Newland both finished one game behind so we had two runners up and the others were all very close behind.
