Men’s Singles Draw

The men’s final was contested by Jamie Perkins and Ollie Newsome and what a tremendous battle this turned out to be. Defending champion Jamie knew he faced a tough challenge for his crown and both finalists had reached this stage without dropping a set, despite some tough opponents in their path. Ollie has come through the junior ranks at the club and also helped the Leeds men’s first team to two recent promotions. Conditions were fairly good with an overcast afternoon and slight wind but with no sun visibility was good. The opening set was one of the most competitive and fierce of the tournament and there was little between the pair. With Jamie serving at 15-40 and 5-5, Ollie sensed a chance to claim a crucial advantage but the champion held and turning up a notch ran out a narrow 7-5 winner. This seemed to allow Jamie to relax more and he began to turn up the heat with some clinical finishing as he won the second 6-1 to retain the title.

Ollie can be very pleased with his efforts and showed how far he has improved in a relative short space. Thanks to both for great entertainment.

The men’s singles event has been well supported and a big thanks to all who took part with some excellent tennis throughout. The group system and players choosing partners ensured all the chaps were able to find fairly equal opponents in the early stages and it worked well in the testing times we find ourselves.

Congratulations to Jamie Perkins on his men’s singles win today and enjoy tucking into those biscuits later!

Each player will have three group games with the winner of each section advancing to the knock out stages which will consist of a quarter final, semi-final then final. If there is a tie at the top of a group, the winner will be determined on head to head record. If still unresolved the player needing the least number of individual games will advance (for example a player winning in two sets would beat a player winning in three sets etc)  Each match is best of three sets with a championship tie break to ten played as set three. If players want to play a full final set that is fine if both agree. (The fitter ones amongst us perhaps!) 3 Points for a win and 1 for a loss.

If players can arrange their group matches themselves and text me the scores I will update the tables thanks. I will forward each player a list of their opponents contact details shortly. I would suggest booking two hours for each match which will require reserving consecutive slots via the court booking system . Usual restrictions still apply so no spectators at present sorry. Any questions contact Mike Triffitt on 07508 057744
