Chichester Racquets & Fitness Club hosted a mini tennis ‘red’ tennis tournament for under-eights – the second in a mini-tennis series being staged at the club this summer.

The two-hour event had ten entrants. The first stage was played as a round-robin format, with play-offs for semi-finals and eventually a final in which Daniel McKitterick beat Eleanor Harding 10-3.

Tournament organiser and club coach Peter Cook (pictured with competitors) said: “I’d like to give a huge thanks all the parents who helped by umpiring the matches. As for the competitors, considering this was the first-ever competition experience for all the players, we have been treated to some quality tennis matches, which really bodes well for the future.”
