The tournament drew to a close with a finals weekend at the spectacular Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre. Saturday saw 17 Minis in both the Red and Orange categories travel from all over the country to compete in the finals having won their regional tournaments. The standard of the Mini tennis was incredible with lots of future tennis stars playing, however it was Shay Ryan who was triumphant in the Mini Red finals and a grueling final between Ollie Tarvett and Will Nolan in the Mini Orange event saw Ollie take the victory.
Sunday was a fantastic day consisting of a particularly high standard of tennis in all our Junior and Open finals, and some great family tennis in the parent and child doubles events.A couple of highlights from the day include 15 year old Mollie Crouch showcasing some first class tennis and winning both the U18s girls event and also the Ladies Open. We're excited to see just what the future holds for Mollie in tennis, we've certainly got high hopes! Young Ryan Golesworthy came into the tournament with little experience and a national ranking of 190 for his age group. He battled through his final with a higher ranked player, making incredible court coverage to return every shot he could. After taking it to a third set tie-breaker an exhausted Ryan was victorious! We look forward to having Ryan enter the Powder Byrne tournament again next year!
We'd like to thank all those who entered and congratulations to all that made the finals. A big thank you to all the officials from the finals weekend and also the parents and families who came down to show their support. We look forward to another year of the Powder Byrne Junior and Open Trophy in 2013 and hope to see lots of returning players.
