There was a strong presence of Winchester players in the county tennis championships that were held at the club last week and we now have 5 singles champions titles held by players from the club.
Zach Corner was our first title winner taking the boys 9&U age group on the opening day of the tournament. Another 3 players added their names to the list of county champions on finals day last saturday. Will Coward overcame fellow winchester player Angus McDowall 6-4, 6-1 in the Boys 14&U event while Miles McDowall came out top in a highly entertaining match against Ricky Hernandez to win the boys 16&U title. They were on court for almost three hours with Miles just cliching it 6-7 (7), 7-5, 7-6 (4).
The same players then had to get back on court an hour later and contest the Boys 18&U final and this time Miles had a more comfortable win, taking his second county title, 6-0, 6-2.
The last match of the day was the mens open singles and that saw Winchester's Jean Marc Krone up against Winchester coach Paul Johnson. Jean Marc came through to win the title 6-3, 6-1
