Saturday 15th saw the Red and Green players take to the courts for their first winter tour event. We had 5 players in the Red event and 4 in the Green.
Despite a massive downpour and the good patience of the parent and players we managed to complete all the scheduled matches. In the Red ball event it was 5 yrs old Adam Hunter from Dumfries taking the gold medal as he completed the day with 3 wins out of 4. Rex Castillo from Carlisle came 2nd with 3 wins but lost the head to head with Adam with Jack Wearing (Dumfries) 3rd, Toby Irving (Carlisle) 4th and Dominik Czopek (Dumfries) coming 5th.
In the green ball event, a late call-off gave Orange Dumfries player Cameron Hunter a chance to sample tennis on the big court. The gold medal went to Penicuik’s Gregor Ritson who won 3 out of 3 very tight matches with Carlisle pair of William Tromans and Oliver Sewell’s coming 2nd and 3rd respectfully. Young Cameron didn’t managed any wins but certainly held his own in his first green ball event.
