Wad­low’s rolling back the years

TEN­NIS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

DAVE Wad­low proved there was life in the old dog yet at the Che­sham Bois Ten­nis Club an­nual cham­pi­onships on Satur­day.

Wad­low showed great stamina for a man in his eighth decade of life to out­last op­po­nent Stephen Hill, to win the over-60s ti­tle after a third set tie-break.

Two more club stal­warts, Caro­line Adams and Ali­son Wil­liams, also showed they were in no mood to hang up their rac­quets just yet by pock­et­ing a sev­enth crown.

It wasn’t all about the golden oldies how­ever as Miles Groom and An­gus Creighton, both 12, staged a grip­ping two hour en­counter for the U12 hon­ours, the for­mer com­ing out on top in three sets.

In to­tal, 19 adult and 18 ju­nior ti­tles were set­tled at the end of four months of com­pe­ti­tion in­volv­ing around 130 mem­bers and 150 games.
