The Abingdon Lawn Tennis Club 2016 Open Tournament took place from Sunday 7th to Saturday 13th August. The Open events were

Isabelle Britton and Julia Freeman This year the Grade 4 Junior tournament ran from Monday 8th August through to Thursday 11th August. Total numbers were down a little on last year, but we were graced with good weather all week. By far the busiest day was the Tuesday when we had the 9 & under event. This was keenly fought over four box leagues then a consolation and main draw semi-final and final. Mention should go to Isabelle Britton who is surly a future player to watch.

This piece would not be complete without, once again thanking Julia Freeman for the way she refereed the entire tournament. Also, my thanks go to Jim Eastwood for his expertise on the IT side of things, and keeping the Abingdon Tennis Club web site up to date with all the competition details.

Finally, thank you to all the competitors for the excellent tennis they put on. There were many matches that were played to a high standard. The sportsmanship was again first class. Thank you to all of you for making the Abingdon Open Tennis Tournament 2016 another week to remember for a long time.

I would also like to again extend my thanks to Bev and Bee for providing the refreshments for the tournament. The morning bacon sandwiches and the lunchtime hot dogs and burgers were again a success.

We hope to see you all again for the 2017 Abingdon Open, which will run from August 14th to August 18th.
