August 2010 - Gerrards Cross 2010

Week three of the Appeti Summer Tour saw eighteen of our players and coaches attending the Gerrards Cross LTC Junior and Senior Open Tournament 2010. Fifteen out of the eighteen camped during the week and despite the rainy weather had a great time cooking over an open fire and playing various games including Ting Tang Tommy.

The tournament as ever was full of tennis with all the players having plenty of opportunity to take to the courts in singles and doubles. The matches were played at three local venues with the majority taking place at Gerrards Cross LTC.

James Davis had another great week winning the final of the 12U boys, his second grade 3 title this summer. James’ win was particularly impressive as he played his semi final on the Saturday morning and due to rain delay didn’t play the final till early evening where he saw off ten set points against Taylan Ozdemir in the first set and then went on to take the second set 6-0.

Also well done to Tim Bean who won the Mens consolation draw and Tim and Spencer Pells who reached the semi’s in the Mens doubles

Special mention must also go to Rebecca Riezebos (9.1) who played some fantastic tennis throughout the week which culminated in her going three sets with Michela Marini (7.2).

Many thanks to Andy Scholfield and his team at Gerrards Cross LTC for their welcome and a great tournament. We look forward to seeing them all next year!
