The Spring Tennis Open, back after a one year break when the indoor courts were being built, was played out in glorious weather over the easter week and weekend. Over 220 entrants took part in the predominantly junior event although this year saw the introduction of a top quality mens singles tournament as well.
The week was rounded off with an excellent mens final match on Easter Monday morning and those fortunate to have come along and watch saw an engrossing three setter between club members Karl Grossey and Elliott Wood. Karl who had already done well to reach the final, produced some great tennis to take the title 1-6, 6-4, 6-2.
Other notable Winchester performances were from Jean Marc Krone and Austin Gwilliam who were runners up in the boys 18&U and 12&U events respectively and Angus McDowall who reached the semi finals of the boys 14&U
