Successful junior tournament
Lancaster Tennis Club in Lune Road enjoyed beautiful weather for their annual junior spring singles tournament. It started on Bank Holiday Monday for ages 10 & under, 12 & under, 14 & under and 16 &under. The tournament organiser was the Club’s Junior Co-ordinator Pat Clelland and it ran for three days.

The Club was fortunate that funds raised in April through an event delivered by the GB Davis Cup coaches of Bright Ideas for Tennis were available to sponsor this tournament.

Juniors took part from a range of local clubs - Lancaster, StChad’s, St Anne’s, Kirkby Stephen and Lunesdale. A number of very good matches were played in glorious sunshine and the final results were:

Eden Parkinson, Lancaster Tennis Club’s Level 4 LTA coach presented the prizes to these winners and runners up.   He said:
