Mini-Red Mixed Starter Match-play Tournament
On Sunday 20th January 2019, Chichester Racquets & Fitness Club staged an LTA Mini-Red mixed starter match-play event. This grade 6 tournament was the latest open junior tournament held indoors at the Club this current Winter Season. It was played using a round r
obin format on mini red courts and red balls; the matches were each played first to ten points.
The winner, who received a gold medal after winning all five of his matches, was Ollie Appleyard from Havant. Amelia Simmonds, [PTC], was the runner up, and received a silver medal, after winning four out of five of her matches. Third place was Darina Bodnar-Dybash, who travelled from Eastbourne to take part in the competition.
Tournament Referee Peter Cook said afterwards, “The tournament was played in very cold conditions today, making it quite tough on the 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.”
