Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

GER­RARDS Cross LTC’s U10 Greens are AE­GON Team Ten­nis cham­pi­ons af­ter beat­ing ti­tle ri­vals Hal­ton in an age group de­cider.

The pace was set early when Ja­cob Mel­lows beat old Ger­rards Cross old boy Louis Bas­nayake in the sin­gles seed match, with Ryan Teas­dale and Zac Orr-Ewing also win­ning their sin­gles.

But with a sin­gles de­feat for Sonny Dal­ston and losses in the dou­bles for Dal­ston and Mel­lows, and Orr-Ewing and Teas­dale, the match fin­ished level peg­ging over­all.

This meant a dou­bles tie-breaker for the ti­tle, which Mel­lows and Orr-Ewing won 10-7 to give Ger­rards Cross an over­all 7-6 victory. The pre­vi­ous games have seen Ger­rards Cross beat Stony Stratford 8-4, Che­sham Bois 10-2 and Bea­cons­field 12-0.

Mean­while, the club will host an open day of free ten­nis and coach­ing for both chil­dren and adults at Bulls Lane this Sun­day, from 2pm to 4.30pm.

No pre-book­ing is needed.

DE­CIDER:

Ryan Teas­dale, Zac Orr-Ewing, Ja­cob Mel­lows and Sonny Dal­ston
