Darren Poppy had a very successful day, winning three titles.

He only just managed to overcome Conor McQuistin in the singles, winning on a championship tie-break. Conor deservedly received the most improved junior award.

Darren continued his winning

form in the doubles, in the men's with Ray Finch and the mixed with Linda Green.

The latter event was played as an American tournament and brought more participation to finals day.

The ladies' doubles was won by new member Anne Green with Sharon Carter, and the most improved senior was Jean Smith, who confirmed this by being runner-up in the mixed doubles with Justin Howlett.

The ladies' singles will be contested at a later date.

Club person of the year award went to D team captain Monty Montacute, whose team also gained promotion.

It is hoped the tournament for the Frank Weston Trophy will be held on Sunday, October 5, at 10am. This is to be confirmed.

The winter league matches start on September 28, and club members are reminded that there will only be one court available on match days.
