Under 15 & Under 19 Junior Open Doubles Championships 2018
These championships were held at Wellington College over the weekend of 9th/10th June. The range of ages playing obviously resulted in a wide range of abilities being on show. The standard overall was very high which resulted in some excellent matches throughout.
In the group stages of the Under 15 level there were many really good matches including excellent performances from the 2 all girl pairings from Wellington. However it was the 2 top seeded pairs, Max Trueman/James Medlow (Seacourt) and Max Jones/ Willem Sweet(Wellington) that got through to the final. A good final gradually developed in to a great one. The first set went to the Wellington boys and the second to the Seacourt pair. The third set saw the tennis go to another level with Max Trueman & James Medlow just coming out on top to win the title.
The group stages of the under 19 section produced a final between the Seacourt pairing of Huw Thomas/William Flynn against Benedict Yorston/Ned Batstone from Radley. Although Huw and William played really well they were not quite good enough to break down the older more experienced partnership from Radley. Benedict and Ned winning 6/4 6/3
Thanks go out to the Wellington club for hosting the event and to the T&RA for their continued sponsorship. Also, a big thankyou to Wellington Head Professional Dan Jones and guest marker Adam Phillips.
