British Under 19 Doubles Championships 2019
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 itâ€™s members for hosting the event. Also, importantly to the T&RA for their sponsorship.
