The last event of the 2018/19 D&G Red2Yellow Winter Tour was played in Spring like conditions at Dumfries Tennis Club.
We had 5 Dumfries players and Sam Donnelly from Dalbeattie TC taking part in the first outdoor Red ball event for 2019.
Both Dominik and Jack got to the last match without losing any matches although both were pushed all the way by Ethan Leyman 10-8 & 11-9, who was playing in his final Red ball match before moving up to orange on Monday. Adam Hunter got the better of both Sam and Caitlin Topping to secure 4th place with both Sam and Caitlin enjoying the first outing at the outdoor Red event.
This left the final match between Jack and Dominik to see who would secure the gold medal and the leaderboard trophy. The scores ebbed and flowed as the boys went toe to toe before Dominik consistent hitting put pressure on Jack who started to hit a few long which gave Dominik the victory by 10-7 and lift the gold medal. However it was Jack who secured the trophy for the leaderboard with a 7 point margin at the top. Again great to see the kids playing well and enjoying the tennis.
Just as the parents thought it was time to relax, then comes along the Summer tour which kicks off on Saturday 6th April with a Red and Orange event on the outdoor courts at Dumfries. The closing date to enter is Monday 1st April at 10am.
