Hundreds turn out for Droitwich's tennis club championships

MORE THAN one hundred people turned up at Droitwich Spa Tennis Club to watch the culmination of the Club Championships which had been running throughout the summer.

With a record entry this year across classes from juniors to over-60s, some excellent tennis was played across the board watched by friends, family and other members of the club.

The pick of the bunch was undoubtedly the final of the under-18 boys singles between Evan Goss and James Stanford.

More than three hours of epic tennis passed, watched by open mouthed spectators, before Goss finally came out on top in a three-set battle.

Close behind was another classic in the mixed doubles with Mark Jones and Lauren Whiteman holding on for a 7-6, 7-6 win over Scott Howell and Dee Smith to become club champions.

This year’s singles champions were Lee Cowan and Whiteman. Lee then set a small piece of club history partnering 12-year-old Scott Mortimer in the final of the men’s doubles – the first time such a young player had reached this stage.

However, in another three-set epic, Cowan and Mortimer lost out the stronger pairing of James Nam and Howell.

A spokesperson for the club said: “Congratulations must go to all of the finalists who played their part in a brilliant day which finishes off the summer season adding to what has been an unbelievably successful year for the club.”
