Club Finals Day 2018

Oswestry Tennis Club’s Finals Day took on Sunday 30th September. This was a culmination of all the inter-club tournaments that had taken place during the spring and summer season. The weather stayed fine and all the club members and family who came down to spectate and support the participants were privy to a great spectacle of tennis. In the morning two singles and one double match took place

The singles Box 2 winner was David Clough who beat junior member Daniel Edwards 6-3, 6-3

The Ladies Doubles Handicap final winners were Carol Johnson & Clare Parsons-Hann who narrowly beat Shirley Jones and Jo Dailetos in a very closely fought contest 6-4, 5-7 and 4-2 in the final set best of seven games

After a quick breather Jo was back on court to face Chris Smith in the final of the singles Box 3 where she was victorious in three sets 3-6, 6-1, 1-0 (10-7) These matches were followed by a delicious buffet lunch before the afternoon proceedings got under way

The finalists of the prestigious singles Box 1, to decide the men’s overall club champion, then took to the court where Matt Grice overcame Gary Edwards in straight sets 6-1, 6-2

The final match of the day was the mixed handicap doubles which was a really exciting close affair between Peter Scott and Clare Parsons-Hann and David Clough and Emily Lowe with the latter pair taking the trophy 6-3, 7-9, and 4-2 in the deciding set best of seven games
