Next stop on the ‘Appeti Summer Tour’ was the Tunbridge Wells Summer Junior Tournament 2011.
With lots of players of all ages competing, the week proved to be a busy one. In the girls draw, Charlotte Hobbs reached the Quarter Finals of the 18U Singles, beating fellow Appeti player, Hannah Tonry, along the way. Hannah went on to reach the Quarter Finals of the 14U Girls Singles, being beaten by eventual winner Sarah Wray (6.1).
In the Consolation Girls draw both Hannah and Evie Robertson reached the Semi Finals. Evie had more success in the 14U Girls Consolation Girls draw, where she reached the final and played Hannah Watton in a really close, nail biting match. Well done to Evie who was victorious, beating Hannah 7-6 (3) 7-5.
Dan Gould had a great week reaching the quarter final of the main draw 14U Boys singles, only losing out to higher rated player, Elliot Ward.
On Friday Jo Jo Thomas, Ollie Richards and Ciaran Brewer competed in the 9 & Under Boys Singles under the watchful eye of coach Tim Bean. Jo Jo Thomas narrowly missed out on reaching the semi finals losing in three sets to eventual finalist, Steven Rich, 7-5 5-7 14-12.
Ciaran returned the next day to compete in the 8 & Under Boys Singles alongside Will Gee. Both boys were joined by coach and former 18U and 21U Kent Champion Ffion Newberry. Ciaran and Will played some great tennis and both reached the semi finals of the draw but although both fought hard did not make a place in the final.
Well done to all the players that competed this week.
