What a weekend of tennis we had in the junior club championship 2018. Saturday 1st September saw our first final between the 2 Murtagh brothers in the 12 & Under finals. On a glorious day of weather ahead for the boys with a fantastic support from family & club members they got the match under way. Early signs showed Josh takes an early lead but the fighter he is Fin stayed with him. This was pretty much how the match continued with some fantastic long rallies being played. In the end Fin came out on top this year with a powerful first serve at his disposal. I am very confident both these boys will have many more finals against each other. Well done boys Beechcroft is very proud.
In our second final on the afternoon it was the 10 & under Green club champs. We have Darcy Jones who has literally just moved up from 9 & Under playing against Archie Riley who has been playing a little longer on the big court. Both were nervous at the start, especially at the arrival of fantastic support from club members and family again. Both these young stars didn’t disappoint. Both showed fantastic sportsmanship and the tennis was really pleasing on the eye. In the end after a really battling display Darcy struggled to keep up with Archie’s power and control. Well done Archie who was crowned our 10 & under club championship 2018. Another fantastic display from Darcy who like others at Beechcroft has a bright future in the sport.
