The highlight to the Oswestry Tennis club calendar year happened on Sunday when the club held its Club Finals Day.

The day started with a Social Tournament where 10 members enjoyed a competitive series of mini matches, banking points for each game won, culminating in the lady and man with the highest points total pairing together to play against the lady and man who achieved the second highest points in a final show-down.

Richard Hann and Rose Butler played against Vincent Looijer-du Puis and Carol Slater who came out on top to take the trophy.

The participators of the social tournament refreshed themselves with a shared lunch before settling down with other spectators to watch the opening Club Championship finals; the Mixed Singles Final and the Ladies Singles final.

Chairman Gary Edwards and junior member Kobe Jones earned their places in the Mixed Singles final having won their semi-final matches, having finished in the top four in the ladder tournament run over the spring and summer.

Jones started the better and quickly wrapped up the first set by 6-1 displaying his stylish and accurate power-shot play before Edwards forced a tie-break in the second set which Jones won to lift the trophy at his first attempt.

Two junior members Millie Hann and Ellie Edwards competed in the Ladies Singles final having finished first and second on the ladder.

A terrific standard of tennis was played as the girls battled out a nip and tuck first set before Hann won the tie break and ran away with the second set, winning it by 6-1 to win the trophy.

The last of the finals was the Doubles Handicap Knock-out tournament which saw Richard Hann and Gary Edwards seek to overcome a handicap disadvantage against Alan Clarke and Kobe Jones with the latter winning 6-1, 6-3.

The club now looks forward to the start of the Shropshire Autumn League Mixed Doubles tournament and its next social tournament with its friends at Oswestry Team Tennis on October 24.
