Champion of Champions Event

Devizes Tennis Club hosted this inaugural tournament on a lovely sunny morning.

The Mens event had the Champions from Devizes, Downton, Salisbury and Royal Wootton Bassett whilst the Ladies were from Chippenham, Devizes and Riverside.

Simeon Holmes and Ian Dunston (Devizes) started with a 7-5 win over Francis Smith and Ryan Howard (Salisbury) while Patrick Watts and Finley Black (Downton) beat Simon Lincoln and Graham Reed on a tie-break.

Simeon and Ian then beat Patrick and Fin followed by Simon and Graham to confirm first place. Francis and Ryan having beaten Simon and Graham need to beat Patrick and Fin to claim runners-up spot, which they did.

In the Ladies each pair played 2 sets against their opponents. Carolyn Barry and Eila Barron (Riverside) won all 4 sets played to become champions whilst Ginny Dalrymple and Sarah Fleming (Devizes) won 2 sets to take runners-up spot from Jan Smith and Hannah Carter (Chippenham)

A successful and enjoyable day with all players wanting to play in it again next year.

Big thanks to Devizes Tennis Club for allowing us to use their courts.
