Juniors Step up for Tennis Match Play

3 March 2023

Last Saturday fourteen eager juniors from Club Towers and Sharnbrook Tennis Club played a 3-team match in our Dome. The aim was to give some of our coached juniors some much needed match experience. The competition began with singles on 2 courts and doubles on the other 2 courts, with coaches Nick and Paul and enthusiastic parents in support.

Each round was a 20-minute match so we could make sure everyone had singles and doubles match play experience. We were pleased to see the high level of competition, with some fantastic play from all players and the sportsmanship from all was exceptional.

After four hard fought rounds, we all retired to the Club Lounge for the post-match buffet and drinks while match scores were announced.

Congratulations to the Sharnbrook team who edged the points from the two Club Towers teams by 28 points to 25 and 23 respectively.  A close match! Well done to all of the juniors who took part.

Thank you to those parents for bringing children along, we hope you and they enjoyed it, despite the narrow loss. We think all the players gained from being part of a team with a great afternoon of tennis and social skills development.  The next match will be next term and we intend to invite other Bedfordshire clubs to participate too.
