Red2Yellow 12s Event

Another glorious sunny day as Dumfries Tennis Club hosted the 2nd 12s event for the Red2Yellow Tour.

With a late withdrawal we only had 2 boys and 2 girls so a mixed event was played with 3 local kids and Julia Janowska from Edinburgh taking part. Both Julia and Fergus won their first 2 matches before completing the competition against each other.

The players broke each other serves in the first 2 matches but then Julia’s power game came to the fore. The pair traded shot after shot but as Fergus started to drop the ball short Julia kept the power going as she hit the baseline with regular accuracy to complete her 3rd win with a 4-1, 4-1 victory. In the other match Flynn and Isla played some great rallies as Isla started to find her shot length but Flynn kept his cool on the heat to complete the win 4-1, 4-2. Unfortunately the 14s event scheduled for the 13th was cancelled due to not having any entries.

D&G Red2Yellow Tour Red & Orange for May

What a glorious day (6th) for the 2nd Red and Orange events for the D&G Red2Yellow tour. There were 20 kids signed up with some playing in both events. So 15 entries in the red event and 11 in the orange took to the sun kissed courts in Dumfries aiming to do as well as they could as they chased for a medal and tried to gain points for the leaderboard title.

The Orange event consisted of 2 round robin groups with the top 2 in each going through to the semi finals with the rest of the players competing for a play-off position. After some excellent tight group matches the semi finals lined up with local boy Cameron Hunter (Dumfries), who was playing in his first orange event, taking on Angus Jones from Doncaster. However despite some good rallies and lots of running in the baking sunshine Angus kept control of the game and completed the win 10-6. In the other semi Carlisle’s Jake Irving who is currently top of the leaderboard took on Oliver Clark from Edinburgh to see who would face Angus in the final. Again another great semi which on this occasion went Oliver’s way as he edge out Jake 10-7. In the 3rd and 4th play-off Jake seem to run out of steam as Cameron kept on going to claim 3rd place with a 10-1 victory. In the final both boys again play some great tennis in the heat with Angus holding on for a 10-6 victory to claim the gold medal. This leaves Jake still sitting top of the leaderboard with Oliver closing the gap to just 6 points. The next scheduled Orange event is the 17th June.

In the red event we had 15 kids playing in 3 round robin groups and we welcomed back 3 girls from the 2018 red tour as Grace Palmer, Eilidh Topping and red tour winner Autumn took to the court against the boys with all 3 gaining good wins on the day.

In the semi’s Jake beat Thomas 10-1 with Logan edging past club mate Cameron 10-5. Cameron completed his second 3rd place finish of the day as he edge out Thomas 10-5. In the final Logan started strongly and gained an early lead but Jake kept going and completed the win 10-5 to take the gold. This leaves Jake top of both leagues with Brodie 13 points behind.

Red2Yellow Tour 12s & 14s

The Scottish weather at it’s best with temperatures in the high teens if not creeping into the twenties on a glorious Saturday for the 12s & under boys event to then finish the weekends play on a drizzly Sunday with a breezy wind cutting through the courts of Dumfries.

R2Y 12 Boys

Saturday saw 6 local lads playing in the first 12s event of the Red2Yellow Tour. We had five from Dumfries and one from Annan Seaforth as the boys played under the baking sun. The first couple of rounds when the way of the experienced trio of Fergus Reynolds-Lewis, Jacob Holden (Both Dumfries) and Flynn Dalgliesh from Annan as they recorded 4-0 wins against the inexperienced opponents. Then as Jacob made it 3 wins with a tough match against Peter Whitelaw then came the match of the 2 favorites, early advantage went to Flynn as he broke Fergus’s serve. The next game proved crucial as both boys traded some good rallies before Fergus leveled at 1-1. With the court temperature rising both boys traded some lengthy rallies as Fergus started to gain the upper hand and completed the win 4-1. Peter managed 2 wins again Thomas Rideout and Finn Gordon before Thomas edged past Finn 4-3. Fergus completed the day undefeated with his 5th win before Flynn and Jacob played out a great match to see who finished 2nd and 3rd.  The player produce a great set of tennis which included a 24 shot rally which was amazing under the baking sun. Flynn came through to win the match 4-0 but both players walked away with big smiles after a very close match which the score didn’t do it justice.

The contrast on Sunday was amazing as the rain fell gentle onto the artificial grass courts. Three local Moffat girls played out a round robin group as Heather Keal managed 2 wins against her club mates with Catie Palmer edging out Tessa Wilson to take runners up spot. In the boys event Moffat’s Brandon Smith completed 2 wins in his group to set up a final against rising young star Archie Agnew from Carlisle. Eleven year old Archie started strongly against his older opponent and dominated throughout the match to take the gold medal with a 4-0, 4-1 victory. The 3rd and 4th play-off saw 2 Edinburgh boys play out a close match as Stephan Britton Hall bt David Fairley 4-2, 4-3. This left the battle of the brothers as 10 year old Fergus took on his older brother Finlay for the first time in a competitive match. Both boys had struggled in the round robin but Fergus who had enjoyed a good winter of tennis proved to have more appetite for the win as he took this battle this time to secure 5th place.

The next scheduled competition is a Red and Orange event at Dumfries on 6th May.
