We were delighted to stage yet more Halloween special Tennis tournaments this October... MONSTER SMASH!
We had Red, Orange, Green & Yellow players taking part across the two days of competition and it was brilliant to see so many of our young stars in action, while also getting in the Halloween spirit with some frightful costumes!!
Saturday 27/10/2018 saw our Mini Red players in action and although it was a slightly smaller field, it was not short of quality and drama! Our overall winner on the day was Daniel Wright, following a closely fought contest with our runner up Jamie Suggett. So, massive congratulations to Daniel on his second tournament victory here at Telford and also big well done to Jamie, on a great effort.
Mini Orange took centre stage on Tuesday 30/10/2018 morning, with a brilliant field of players taking part and producing plenty of excellent matches! Our 2018 winner overall was Jake Beardsmore, who edged out Felix Fletcher in another hotly contested final match. So, massive well done to Jake on his first Mini Orange competition win at Telford! Also, great effort from Felix our runner up on the day, well done to you too.
Finally it was the turn of our Mini Green and Yellow players on Tuesday afternoon to show what they could do and they did not disappoint! A great afternoon's play ensued, with some brilliant matches taking place. Winner on the day was Tom Dow, who came through a gruelling last match against Cole Thompson, to claim victory. So, massive congratulations to Tom on another victory here at Telford and also great effort from Cole, our runner up on the day.
It was amazing to see so many young Tennis stars taking part in our various MONSTER SMASH competitions recently and we couldn't be happier to see everyone enjoying themselves, whilst experiencing some competition play.
Also, a special hand has to go to our competition organiser Tim Calver, who certainly went the extra mile with his fancy dress, even topping last year's costume perhaps!
We must once again say a special thank you to our junior umpires/helpers for our Mini Red competition too, who were outstanding in making sure everything went smoothly and matches were officiated well. Thank you to Libby Rowe, Thomas Gault, James Phillips, Sam Porrett and Liam Moore!
Thank you to everyone for attending our MONSTER SMASH competitions this year and we hope to see you all again next year!
