Boston Tennis Club is currently hosting a Grade 4 Clay Court tournament at its Sleaford Road centre.

This weekend heralded the start of this event, which continues this Saturday.

George Wookey, Michael Niedermeier, Alex Pinchin and Connall Newton were all representing the host club in the under 14 boys’ event.

Connall reached the semi-finals but lost to number one seed Simon Brenchley (Derbyshire), who in turn lost out to Surrey’s Sergiu Celebidachi.

Connal went in to the third/fourth play-off but lost to Daniel Chamoun (Essex).

Thomas Hull was beaten in the under 12s semis by Edward Searle (Bedfordshire), but finished third, beating Tenison Prempeh (Cambridgeshire) in the play-off.

Thomas Cozens and Philippe Servonat both had a tough time.

In the under 16s category, Thomas met the second seed in his first match, which didn’t help his cause.

Philippe, competing in the men’s section, appeared to be out on court all day.

He lost his first two epic matches, both in three sets.

However, he won his final group match in two sets.

Boston Tennis Club’s mini tennis A team maintained their unbeaten record with victory over Grantham in the Junior Winter Team Tennis event.

There was a solid start for the team when Harvey Vickers and William Cheer won both for the green section.

Orange section players Lois Boothby and Isabel Wookey came through some long three-set matches to win their round.

Meanwhile red section players Emily Stukins, James Gedney, Finley Mackey and Joshua Brooks became embroiled in a very close match.

Before the match both the Boston and Grantham red teams were unbeaten, and who would remain so came down to the final round of the doubles.

However, it was the Boston team who finished on top to keep their record alive.
