Club Finals Day 20th July 2019 – Match Report

Finals Day 20th July 2019  – As if on cue the rain stopped and the sun came out for another terrific Finals Day at the Club.

Men’s Singles. Jon Warnes and Andy Jackson took the court, having never played each other in a Men’s Final before.

As play got underway, Warnes was serving well, and giving Jackson a run for his money. There was some terrific cross court play, and superb returns, that caused gasps and comment from the crowd. Nevertheless the incumbent holder (Warnes) marched on and took the first set 6-1.The second set was a different matter, Jackson came out with new resolve and the set went with serve. Warnes looked as though he could be in a bit of trouble. Could it be going to three sets??! In a very exciting second set, that was enjoyed by the spectators, Warnes stepped up to the mark. After a further, very hard fought battle by both players, he eventually took the set 6-4 and the match 6-1, 6-4.The players were a credit to the Club. Great tennis, played in excellent spirit offering tremendous entertainment. Congratulations Jon.  Andy after a performance like that we expect to see you again next year.

Men’s Doubles – Familiar faces took to the court in Oliver Bunyan, Paul Lamb, Jon Yelland and Kit Davies .The match was eventually won by Kit Davies and Jon Yelland against a resilient Oliver Bunyan and Paul Lamb. Davies and Yelland put on a solid show, taking the first set 6-3 before coming back from 4-1 down to take the second 6-4. Their strong return of serve along with the windy conditions made it difficult for Bunyan and Lamb to get into the match. A good performance by all much to the delight of an enthusiastic ELTC crowd. Well done to all

Mixed Doubles

Again familiar faces in the Lindsay Cameron and Oliver Bunyan pairing, and new blood as Jon Yelland and Michelle Agate took to the court. We saw the full range of shots in this final. Superb serving from Bunyan, some great net shots, lofty overheads and canny drop shots from all participants. Eventually the experienced pairing of Cameron and Bunyan proved to be difficult to beat and they took the final 6-3, 6-2. The Yelland /Agate pairing showed tremendous promise for the future with sound directional comment from Yelland.

Thanks go to Lianne, Nicky and Jon for umpiring the matches and to all the spectators for supporting the players.

Now we have to look forward to the next part of Finals Day when the Ladies singles and Doubles will be played. Date to be announced soon.

Champions !!! Mens First Team top their Winter League

With six victories and one draw, our Men’s 1st team had a successful winter season. They finished as champions and gained promotion to Division 3 for next season.

With a core of 5 men covering all the matches, consistency in selection helped generate strong performances with the highlight being a 16-0 whitewash of local rivals Winchmore Hill.

It’s given the team something to build on – a good confidence boost – as we start our summer season at home on April 30th.

Why not come along and see us in action?
