Junior Tournaments 2022

Sunday 18 Sept, after completion of the Club Championship finals, we will run the Junior tournaments.  Depending on numbers we hope to run the following events:

  • Loudwell Cup…..adults be prepared to play with your junior if needed i.e. have your trainers on! The format is each junior/adult pair to play each other, in a first to 10 points (with 2 clear points) game. The junior who has won the most games overall will be the winner. A shortened court will be used and the junior ball can bounce twice in the court, before hitting by the junior.
  • Hilary Moss cup(s). The format for the Hilary Moss Girls’ and Boys’ matches will be one full set of ordinary tennis, with a 7-point tie break at 6-6 if necessary. (Bring rackets if you have them, but we can provide adult and junior rackets if needed. We will use club balls)
  • Please ensure everyone playing is wearing suitable footwear, has a hat and suncream if necessary and has a water bottle. There will be squash and biscuits available too.
Sorry to the family who are on holiday on that date, but we look forward to seeing everyone else at 2.30pm on Sunday September 18th, unless it is absolutely pouring with rain!

Loundwell Cup 2021

On Saturday 19th September in glorious sunshine the Loudwell cup recommenced after a two year break.The Club was delighted to welcome back our Honorary President, Hilary Moss, to award the Trophy in the afternoon to one Junior from 7 pairs (Junior plus Parent). Tom Leviss our eventual winner, was joined by coach Sally Utting at last minute when his mother fell ill. Tom aged 12 played consistently well across his 6 matches dropping only 4 games against other Juniors- some of which were playing their first Loudwell cup aged 7. Everyone demonstrated some great shots and how they had developed their own game over the Summer. Our coaches Sally and Rob develop the key stroke play which lead to a competitive and fun afternoon of junior tennis! We look forward to extending the tournament next year and seeing more juniors and their families.

Hilary Moss Girl’s Trophy

This trophy is open to all teenage girls at the club and was played this year for the first time since 2016. Lara Bayliss-Binks (15) beat Lucy Bayliss-Binks (18) in two sets 6-1, 6-1. The games were much closer than the score suggests. Lara won the decisive points under pressure to take the games and kept going! Thanks to our Welfare Officer Romy Spindler for presenting the cup
