Summer Singles 2016

During our very popular summer club in May and June this year we held our annual summer singles tournament open to all summer club members.

The ten players were organised into two qualifying groups with the top two going through to the semi-finals.

Group A saw Nick go through as top of the group after 4 wins out of 4. Dan went through in second place after a vital 21-16 win over Alexandra. In Group B, Steve secured a narrow 22-20 over David in his first game before going through as undefeated group winner. The battle for second came down to a tight game between David and Jonathan, which was unfortunately marred by a nasty ankle injury to Jonathan. David eventually winning 21-16.

In the semi-finals Steve ran out a 21-12 winner over Dan and Nick secured a place in the final for the third time after a tight 21-18 win over David. David then secured a deserved third place with a 21-13 win over Dan.

The final was played as a best of 3 games. It was a very closely fought contest throughout. Eventually youth was victorious over experience(!) with Nick winning his first summer singles final, beating Steve 21-18, 22-20.
