Swindon Clubs dominate the Junior County Champs

111 players from across the County participated in The Wiltshire LTA Junior County Championships that was held at The Royal Wootton Bassett Tennis Club where the clubs from Swindon took away most of the titles

After a very wet opening day, when the event moved indoors to the Delta Tennis Centre, the weather was set fair for the rest of the week so Referee Roger Witt and his team managed to complete all the matches in time for Finals Day when Sir Geoff Owen, President of Wiltshire LTA, was present to award the trophies and medals.

Alex Heaps from Delta TC won three events – the Boys 18 & under singles and then the Boys and Mixed 18 & under doubles with Ed Opie and Jess Doerr respectively but Jessica Longjohn went one better by winning four events – the 14 & under and 16 & under Girls singles which she followed up by winning the 14 & under Girls and Mixed doubles with Rebecca Heaps and Jack Goodwin respectively

The two 12 & under winners, Georgia Ifil and Anthony Longjohn automatically qualify for the national ‘Babolat Cup’ later in September.

When presenting the prizes Sir Geoff Owen said “The standard of the finals was high and I can see that the future of Wiltshire Tennis is in good hands”

Many thanks to Royal Wootton Bassett TC, Delta TC, Referee Roger Witt and all the fantastic court supervisors and volunteers who helped during the week.
