| The last weekend in September was another superb weekend for tennis at the Meadows courts -we held both the Ladies and Gents singles championships on the Saturday afternoon.|
Isabella beat Ailsa in the final to win the ladies singles championship this year, securing her name both in the hall of fame, and on the miraculously rediscovered ladie's singles shield. Was good to have a ladies championship again after a 2 year break, hopefully this one is first of a long run.
For the gents, John topped group 1 with newcomer Thomas coming second; Andrew came top of group 2 with Jackson close behind. But Thomas managed to secure victory over Andrew in semis, and Jackson beat John: the final was between players who had finished second in their group.
Jackson found fresh form in the final to retain the singles title, with Thomas unhappily hampered by a blister!
Thanks to all players who took part, to David and Fiona for their organisational prowess, and to Isabella and Sofiane for the pics!
