Junior Club Championship 2020
We were fortunate enough to be able to schedule in the 2020 Bourton Vale Junior Tennis Club Championship on September 6th. A limited field of players but all very eager to do their best, and that they did! It is just incredible to see the improvement each player has made over the course of one year especially considering the circumstances. The first match to be played was William Bell (5) against Raef Blundell-Palethorpe (8) and only the second point in saw a tremendous rally of over 8 shots. Both boys played really well in all of their matches with Raef just getting the better of William Bell to claim runner-up spot. Next up was Scarlett Blundell-Palethorpe (6) against last year’s champ, William Souch (9). Looking much more comfortable hitting the ball this year and always with a smile on her face, Scarlett was overjoyed every time she scored a point. Great to see her having such fun. William Souch playing in his other matches had warmed up nicely and was zinging the returns back to rack up the points, eventually winning all 3 of his matches. Well done William, this year’s Junior Club Champion for the second consecutive year!
