A big congratulations to our pro Claire Fahey who retained her World Singles and Doubles title, with her sister Sarah. They travelled for 10 days to Tuxedo Park, USA to compete in this event. It’s fantastic to see the Vigrass sisters still dominating the ladies game and representing Prested!
Prested pair Mark Nicholls and Steve Taylor lost the national Over 40s Doubles final (here at Prested) to Peter Wright and David Watson (of Hampton Court), but the Mikes Norgrove & Carter took revenge on the padel court. (It was, however, the visitors’ first ever game of padel, or so they claimed!)
June in the Real Tennis office saw the conclusion of our Annual Club tournaments on ‘Finals Evening.’ A big congratulations to all those who played throughout the season, but an even bigger congratulations to our winners Steve Taylor (Level Singles), Steve Taylor & Toby Bawden (Level Doubles) and to Hannah Lucey, Richard Ramjane and Steve Steadman, who all won their respective Wilkinson Trophy grades and are now in a 3-way tie to decide the overall Wilkinson Trophy winner 2017.
We had plenty of tennis going on outside the club this month, and more titles for Prested! Congratulations Ian Hawkey & Bryan Eaton for winning the Rose Bowl at Newmarket and also to Clive Turner & Chris Vigrass for winning the Plate Doubles at Newmarket. Our Pro Team of Mr & Mrs Fahey also won the Premiere National League in a nail-biting final. A very successful month for the club!
