Finals weekend was, as always, full of great tennis with some genuinely enthralling matches. The closest fought one was probably the first : the Mens Singles match which went to a third set with no-one really able to predict the outcome at that stage. It was Peter Grant who won… the first of his remarkable six (yes, that is six) successes! He played and won three on Saturday and still had the stamina to play and win another three on Sunday. Many congratulations Peter! Jane Vincent also had a busy weekend, winning all four of her finals.
They had certainly earned their drink at the end of Saturday.
The Ladies Doubles match was very entertaining with great “gets” and long, long rallies, even producing some gasps of astonishment from the spectators as the rallies unfolded.
