H & P Junior and Senior Club Championships 2018

Club Championships Finals Day:
Sunday, July 22nd marked the culmination our 1st annual Adult & Junior Club Championships and what a day it was! The weather was glorious, the tennis fantastic and the BBQ delicious!
We started back in June with over 60 entrants in 13 divisions who were whittled down to the finalists on the 22nd. Spectators enjoyed some high class tennis with the marquee men’s and ladies open singles being contested by Jamie Kober, Charlie Kober, Sarah Jackson & Elizabeth Kober. In the men’s final it was a family battle with Jamie Kober prevailing over Charlie Kober 6-2,6-0.
In the ladies final, Sarah Jackson overcame Elizabeth Kober in a tight first set, 6-4 and then captured a more one-sided second set, 6-1 to seal the victory.
Jamie & Charlie then sided with each other to win the men’s open doubles over Rod Smith & Will Jackson, 6-4,6-1. Sarah & Elizabeth also teamed together to win the ladies open doubles over Jennifer Dobson & Miranda Stibora, 6-0,6-1.
In the mixed open doubles Elizabeth & Jamie Kober overcame Sarah & Will Jackson, 6-2,6-2.
Many age group categories were played as well and the tennis was highly competitive.
In the ladies over 45s singles Marcia Stibora beat Jane Butcher, 6-3,6-3 and Steve Tyrell won the men’s over 55s singles.
The ladies over 40s doubles was won by Jane Butcher & Jo Sayer.
The men’s over 55s doubles was won by David Guest & Tony McLay who beat Martin Adams & Steve Tyrrell, 6-0,6-1.
The mixed over 45s doubles final was a thoroughly entertaining affair and had a first set that lasted over one hour! After a very heated battle, Marcia Stibora & Tony McLay held on to beat Jane Butcher & Steve Hayes, 7-6,6-1.
In our junior finals the 10 & under girls event was won by Olivia Woolner who beat Molly Stewart in a hotly contested final, 4-3,2-4,10-8.
In the 14 & under girls final, A-M Anderberg beat Lois Hunt, 6-1,6-2.
Rounding off the results, Charlie Kober made it a fantastic day for the Kober family by capturing the 14 & under boys final where he beat Toby Davis, 6-1,6-1.
During the finals, a BBQ was ongoing and the food and drink flowed all afternoon!
Around 75 people attended our finals day and we want to thank everyone that played in the tournament and all the spectators for making it such a great overall event and especially a great finals day.
Hopefully next year the tournament will grow from strength to strength and more players will participate and this will become a favourite date on the H&P Tennis/social calendar...roll on next year!!!
