Chichester Racquets & Fitness Club hosted an eight-and-under red matchplay tennis tournament.

The mixed singles tournament began with a stage using a round-robin format of two groups.

Seven players in each group played matches to a tie-break up to ten points. The best two qualifiers from each group went into an elimination stage.

Ewan Brown from Henfield TC collected bronze by beating Ross Wilson of Chichester, the score 10-7.

Silver went to Casper Tyser, from Berkshire, who lost to gold-medal recipient Edward Timberlake of Chichester Racquets & Fitness Club. The score was 10-2.

Tournament organiser and referee Peter Cook said: “Credit must go to all the players, many of whom were playing in their first event. The standard of play was fantastic.”
