LTA South East Summer County Tour – Freddie Wins Again!

Freddie wins again: well done!

On Sunday 9th July 2017, Chichester Racquets & Fitness Club hosted an LTA South East Summer County Tour 10U Boys’ event.   This Grade 5 singles’ tournament was the latest in a series of LTA junior tennis tournaments which have been held at the Club over the current Summer Competition season.

Matches were played using FAST4 Tournament Scoring Format & Rules.   The best of two short sets (first to four games) with a short tiebreak (first to five points, deciding point at four points all) played at three games all.   If sets were even at the conclusion of the second set, a Match tiebreak (first to ten points, deciding point at nine points all) was played to determine the outcome of the match.

In the bronze medal position was Shayan Bidad, West Hants LTC, who collected the bronze medal after beating Luke Watts, PTC, 4-3 (5-1) 4-0.   Elliott Hill finished runner-up and collected the silver medal, with Freddie Whitby collecting a gold medal after winning the final 4-2, 2-4 10-4.   Both players receive their coaching with the Chichester Tennis Academy based at Chichester Racquets & Fitness Club.

Tournament Referee Peter Cook said, ‘We were entertained with an extremely high standard of tennis here today.   It was truly encouraging to see a couple of our own players performing so well and getting to the final.”
