August 2009 - The Gerrards Cross LTC Open

And so the tour moved on to The Gerrards Cross LTC Junior and Senior Open Tournament. As in previous years this is split into two shorter tournaments allowing the players chance to focus on one age group at a time.

Leigh Sargeant has a fantastic start to the week playing his best tennis so far of the summer to reach the U18 consolation final. To do this he had to beat a number of higher rated players so well done Leigh.

The second half of the week saw Leigh join forces with Tim Bean in the Mens doubles event. Both played well in an exciting match to knock out the number one seeds after a great come back from losing the first set 0-6. Meanwhile some of their younger team mates, Evie Robertson and Katherine Davis also played some great tennis to secure the U12 Girls doubles title.

Well done to all our Academy players who have competed so far and good luck to all of you who are preparing for the next two weeks at Tunbridge Wells and The Kent Open.
