Held last month at the Dumfries Sports Club, for the first time this tournament started on a Friday night as there was such a large entry with players from across the region taking part.

As always the tournament was played in a great atmosphere with some exceptional play on the Nunholm courts.

The under 10 Boys singles final saw a strong performance from the club’s Alex Shearman winning 5-1against Callum Kerr.

One of the most exciting matches of the day was the under 12 Boys singles final between two from Nunholm, Alex Shearman and Sam Copeland. With the boys tied at one set each they played a very close deciding tie break with Alex coming out on top 1-5, 5-4, 10-8.

The under 14 singles was contested by two more from the club, Duncan Muir and Sophie Robinson. Duncan showed the improvement he has made to take the title 6-3, 6-0.

For the third year in a row the under 16 boy’s singles was between Sergio Meola and Jordan Kerr. However this time there was no home win as Sergio was too strong for Jordan winning 6-0, 6-0.

This year the under 18 boys singles final was between Jack Copeland and Sergio Meola. Considering he had been at his school prom the night before Jack gave a strong performance winning 7- 5, 6 – 3 to claim another title for Dumfries Tennis Club.

The under 12 girls final was between Rhona Park and Nicole McDonald with Rhona winning 5-1, 5-1.

In the under 16 girls Sophie Robinson came through very strongly against Blythe Aitken to win 8-0.
