Junior Tournament

The tournament was played on a full sized court with mini tennis green tennis balls which are like regular tennis balls but a little slower and bounce slightly lower. Eight players took part in the tournament and a compass draw was played so that each player was guaranteed three matches. Each match was played as a short set to 4 games and if the score reached 4 games all a tie break to seven was played to decide the match. The tournament was won by Shay Corcoran who beat Oliver Flynn in a close final by five games to three. Louis Hammond won the third and 4th place match whilst Olivia Adkins claimed 5th place by winning the draw for players who lost their first match. There was also a final for 7th and 8th place which was won 5-4 by Zahra Cheema.
