On Sunday the 12th February sixteen adults took part in the second ever Heron Tennis Adult Matchplay, sanctioned by the Lawn Tennis Association, we had players come from as far away as Preston just to compete.
The players were split into two groups of eight and played out to a conclusion from the quarter final stage. The competition was played on the six outdoor courts and the two indoor courts, although all the competitors were very keen to play on the outside courts which was nice to see.
In section one Elliot Moses(Heron Tennis) fought his way through two tough matches to the final and so did Liam Manning(Heron Tennis), they had a great game with lots of long rallys and attacking tennis, with Elliot coming out on top 6-2 6-1.
In section two Luke Ellis(Preston) breezed his way to the final with the loss of just one game , where he took on Matt Dunkerley (Wadebridge) after a one hour first set, Luke came out on top 7-5 6-1.
Well done to all the competitors for taking part, and congratulations to the winners of the two sections Elliot and Luke, great fun was had by all and all the players are already looking forward to the next matchplay in April.
