Latest report and results from the Bracken Rothwell Mini Red Tennis Series

There was a great turnout of 22 players for the second event in the Bracken Rothwell Mini Red Series at Les Ormes on Saturday. The series of tournaments for players aged 8 and under is being held not only to increase competition for our youngest players but also as a fundraiser for Jersey’s Jeux des Iles Tennis Team.  Jeux des Iles tennis team hopefuls were on hand to umpire the matches and to pass on the benefit of their knowledge to the young players.

In the girls event, there were eight entrants who all played each other in a round robin format. All the matches were timed and closely fought and all of the girls won at least one match. Olivia Labesse, playing her first ever tournament, finished fourth; lngrid Marsh third and Nina Grossi beat Naomi de Gruchy 9-8 to take 1st place.

In the boys event, qualifying boxes were played to split them into main and consolation draws. Louis Keenan, Finley Thomson, Andrew Becker, Riley Becker, Freddie Bracken-Smith and Charlie Brennan were all successful in making the main draw. In the quarter finals, Andrew Becker defeated Finley Thomson 11-8.  The other of the Becker brother’s progress in the draw was halted by a determined Freddie Bracken-Smith who beat Riley 13-6. In the semi-finals, Andrew Becker lost to Louis Keenan 10-7 & Charlie Brennan took on Freddie Bracken-Smith but Charlie struggled to find his usual form and lost 13-3 to Freddie. The final was an excellent display of tennis with Louis & Freddie both pushing each other, in the end Louis won 12-3. In a game with very long rallies, Charlie Brennan beat Andrew Becker 6-5 to win the 3rd/4th playoff. The consolation event was won by Eddie Rothwell beating Jack Stevens 10-5.

The next event in the series will be held on 8th February and can be entered online at www.lta.org.uk/competitions
