The weather was perfect for what promised to be a really great finals day on Saturday 6th October. However unfortunately one of our finalists, Jean Marc Krone, was ill on the day and could not take part. What made it particularly disappointing for Jean Marc and those who came along to watch was that Jean Marc featured in three of the main event finals, the mens singles, the mens doubles and the mixed doubles.
Mens Doubles winners Alex Ross & Elliott Wood
The titles were subsequently awarded to the other finalists. Fortunately Karl Grossey stepped in to play an exhibition singles match with the other finalist and reigning club champion Elliott Wood. Elliott still managed to win in a highly competitive and entertaining match. Karl then paired up with Jean Marc's doubles partner Jordan Robinson to play an exhibition doubles match against the champions Elliott Wood and Alex Ross.
Hannah Crawford and Lauren Evans
The ladies singles final was played out on court 1 in front of an appreciative crowd and Hannah Crawford beat Lauren Cockbill to retain her ladies title for the seventh time. Claire Coomer and Charlotte Ames took the ladies doubles title while there was a surprise result in the mens vets doubles with number one seeds Pete Sly and Mark Finlayson going down to John Poulter and Pete McCormack.
McCormack and Poulter had earlier lost out in the mens B Doubles event to Peter Richards and Will Meacock. In the mens vets singles final Mike Johnson overcame Duncan Trew in a very competitive match.
