A NINE-AND-UNDER county tour tennis tournament was a success at Chichester Racquets & Fitness Club.

This grade-five mixed singles contest was organised using a round-robin format, each match comprising best of three tie-breaks to seven points with two points clear.

The top two players from each group progressed to the semi-finals. All other players received additional consolation matches.

Third place and a bronze medal went to Elliot White, who beat his twin brother Max White 7-5, 9-7. Both players play their tennis at the Portsmouth Tennis Academy.

Ross Wilson, a member of Chichester Racquets & Fitness Club, was runner-up and collected the silver medal after losing to Connor Guest from Portsmouth Tennis Academy in a very entertaining final 10-8, 7-2 to pick up gold.

Tournament organiser and referee Peter Cook said, “It was an extremely breezy day on court, so huge credit must go to the players who maintained a very high standard of play throughout.”
