Championship Report

Oli Craven beat Adam Kula-Przezwanski to win the Singles Cup, and then Oli and Willie Entwisle beat Adam and Tom Windsor-Clive in the Regimental Doubles. A double victory for the Royal Navy.

Adam partnered Paul Tennant to win the Past and Present Doubles, beating the ever-green partnership of Paul and Mark Nicholls in the final.

Brigadier James Illingworth flew in from Washington to host the annual CTP and award the prizes.

The following day saw Oli Craven continue his winning ways, beating Andrew James 6/2 6/5 in the Real Tennis Singles. Andrew found his winning touch in both the doubles finals. James & Andrew Speed beat Alick Finlayson & Paul Tennant 2/6 6/3 6/4 in a tight Regimental Doubles Final and Andrew James & David Reed-Felstead beat Mark Nicholls & Charles Wright 6/3 6/2 in the Past and Present.

Final score ARMY 3 NAVY 3 - but who is counting?

Huge thanks to Henry Mitchell, organiser supremo - everything (expectedly) worked to schedule.
