Mini Red Tournament – January 2020


Chichester Racquets & Fitness Club recently staged an LTA South East Winter County Tour Mini-Red Mixed tournament.   This Grade 5 competition was the latest to be held in the Club’s dome facility during this current Winter Competition Season.   It was played using a round robin format, leading to elimination draw format.   Each match was played first to ten points with a sudden death at 9 all.

The winner who received a gold medal and who won all of his matches was Ollie, from Hampshire.  The runner up, receiving the silver medal, was Ben [Sussex] and third place went to Hugo [Sussex].

Tournament Referee Peter Cook said afterwards, “The tournament was played in a really friendly atmosphere today with a tremendous level of sportsmanship.   The weather was also extremely cold, so we were glad to be playing in the dome.  There was a really high standard of play and most of the matches were extremely close and could have gone either way.”
