Beechcroft had an American tournament on Sunday 18th. The weather thankfully stayed dry, the only threat was of being hit by an acorn on the third court! We had 18 players in the draw (which is a fantastic sign of how our tennis club is thriving with lots of new members!), so we had to do two leagues with 5 pairs in one and 4 pairs in the other. We also had to have a same sex couple too, a la Strictly! The game format saw pairings play four games with their partner, then switch partner and play four games against them. Each player recording their own individual score left us with a top Male and top female in each league. To finish we had a final between the two top players of each league, this was Marie and Mike v Jat and Richard. After a close final and tie break, our top scoring Mens champion was Mike and the Ladies champ was honorary female Jat! Both of whom took home our Ken Wilcox cups. A fantastic day full of great tennis. Roll on the next one next month!
