LTA S.E. SUMMER COUNTY TOUR – 8U MIXED SINGLES
On Sunday 5th August 2018, Chichester Racquets & Fitness Club staged an 8U mixed event, its final ‘grade 5’ Summer County Tour tournament of the Summer Competition Season. The event was played using a round robin format on mini red courts and with min-red balls; the matches were each played first to ten points.
Isabelle Lamb, Avenue Kent, was the runner up. She won four out of her five matches and received the silver medal. The winner, who received a gold medal, winning all five of his matches, was Tom Casella [Petersfield, Hants.]. Joseph Cook, who plays his tennis and receives his coaching with Chichester Tennis Academy based at Chichester Racquets & Fitness Club, came third.
Tournament Referee, Peter Cook, said afterwards, “The tournament was played in extremely hot conditions today, with on-court temperatures making it quite tough on such young players. Despite this, the matches were really close and competitive, which was excellent considering some of them were playing in their first LTA staged event.”
