Club serves up great competition at finals day
WORPLESDON Tennis Club hosted its finals day at the weekend.
Lynn Moore was crowned the winner in the ladies singles, beating Sarah Hamilton. The two players have reached the final for the last five years and it went to three sets – ending 6-4 in the third.
They then teamed up for the doubles, where they faced Moore’s daughter Annabel and partner Tracey Manasseh.
The final score was 6-4, 7-6 to Moore and Hamilton as they took the title.
Moore continued her successful competition with victory in the mixed doubles, where she played with new partner Kieron Philpott.
Philpott had swept the board in the men’s singles, beating Stuart Noble in the final, and also won the men’s doubles with Sanjay Patel, where he faced Noble again, partnering Ethan Clements.
The veterans event was won by Colin Christy and Pai Holbrow, who beat Andy Kisiel and Joan Palmer.
The club has been chosen as one of five venues trialling the new initiative I Play 30, a scheme to help people with learning disabilities get into sport.
There will be a training day held at the club on Sunday September 24 from 2pm to 5pm.
