British Under 19 Doubles Championships 2019

Nov 19, 2019
Held at Wellington College 17th November

This tournament attracted young players from many clubs including Radley, Wellington, Queens, Oratory and Seacourt.

There was a high quality entry of 8 pairs with great matches all day. The standard of play was excellent with youngsters playing off very decent handicaps as low as 14!

The first semi-final saw a win for Junior World Champion Freddie Bristowe (Wellington) and Max Jones (Seacourt) who defeated Huw Thomas (Seacourt) and Benji Barnes (Welligton) 8-1. The 2nd semi-final was a much closer contest with Seacourt pairing James Medlow and Max Trueman narrowly defeating Ed Crowston and Max Wetton from the Oratory 8-5.

The final was exceptional with great play from all 4 boys on court. In the end it was the power of Freddie Bristowe ably assisted by his partner Max Jones that prevailed 6-3 6-1.

A great event which saw some amazing performances by the younger entries. 13 year olds Henry Henman (Radley) and Bertie Vallat (Queens) very nearly made the semi-finals and the Seacourt finalists did extremely well to reach the final at just 14 and 15 years old.

Our thanks to Adam Player who marked superbly all day without a break and to the Wellington Club and it’s members for hosting the event. Also, importantly to the T&RA for their sponsorship.
