Our November social saw academy players, their families and coaches taking to the courts for this year’s Appeti Sponge Ball Championship.
This tournament has become an annual event with all ages mixing together to compete on mini courts with 23” rackets and sponge balls
This year a number of our players fancied their chances and were all keen to showcase their skills during the round robin box stages. After two rounds of very close matches with some fantastic rallies Richard and Ffion met in one semi Final whilst Tim faced Graham in the other. Once again there were some great points with Richard and Ffion’s match being decided by a net cord!
The final saw Ffion coming head to head with Tim. In the early stages both players matched each other point for point but Ffion’s depth of shot proved too much for Tim and a new Champion was crowned with Ffion taking the title 10-7
The tournament finished with everyone enjoying fish and chips from Wincheap’s ‘Marino’s Fish Bar’ whilst discussing their favourite shot of the evening.
