The line-up for the under-tens' tournament at Chichester

This grade-four singles tournament was the latest in a series of junior tennis events being staged at the club during the summer.

The bronze medal was presented to Jamie Holligon. Elliott Hill finished runner-up and collected silver, with Freddie Whitby again collecting a gold medal – his second gold after his win at the Chichester Easter Junior Open green event.

All these players receive their coaching with the Chichester Tennis Academy based at Chichester Racquets & Fitness Club.

Tournament referee Peter Cook said: “We were entertained by some extremely good tennis once again. It was also very heartening to see so many of our own players taking part and performing exceptionally well.”
