George V Playing Field

Tarvin Tennis Club held its annual junior tournament on Wednesday, 18 September
The entry for this year's event was somewhat reduced owing to the weather but the quality of the play was higher than it has been for some years, a tribute to the players and to the coach, Gary Ward.
A round robin format ensured that all those competing for the Brannam Cup had the opportunity to play a number of matches and the four boys qualifying for the semi-finals were evenly matched.
The result was a win for defending champion, Tom Hanson, over Joe Clark
Olly Roberts deserves a mention for narrowly defeating Tom in the round robin stages, only to lose to him in the semi-finals.
'Congratulations to all who participated in the tournament.'
