Purton Junior Tournament

The Junior Boys took part in a round robin tournament to decide the annual singles champion this Sunday after the poor weather forced the tournament to be postponed by a day. Considering that this was the first competitive experience for most of the boys the standard of play was very encouraging. After the first two rounds of matches Callum Wickens and Jack Kendall remained unbeaten, having beaten brothers Miles and Raif Gunton, so their match became ‘winner takes all’.  Callum went into a 3-1 lead but Jack battled back to draw level at 3-3.  There then followed 4 incredibly long games with both players producing some good play before Callum took the match by 6 games to 4 to become champion. Congratulations to Callum, and well done to Jack, Raif and Miles.


In the Senior Boys event Oli Madsen took the first set very quickly but then, despite how the scoreline looks, the match became much closer with Tom Kendall finding a bit of form. Oli took the title with a 6-0 6-1 victory.
