The third week of the summer saw William Gee and Joseph Richards competing in the 9U draw of The Alan Thompson Cup. This tournament was held at The Parklangley club and saw 18 youngsters competing against each other.
In the box round where the boys competed against 3 or 4 other players both William and Joseph played well to finish top in their group and therefore qualify to the quarter finals. Again both lads played some great tennis to win through to the semi’s. Unfortunately here they came head to head and as in the past had a great battle to see who would win through. This time Joseph pulled ahead to take the win 3-7, 7-5, 9-7. All that stood between Joseph and winning the 9U title for 2013 was Matthew Pickering.
In the final Joseph and Matthew both played well but Joseph’s quiet and confident manner helped him to pull ahead and take the victory 7-5, 7-4.
Well done Joseph from everyone at Appeti Tennis!
