Lewis Fisher reached the semi-final of the Boston Summer Championships last week.

The Grade Three competition - hosted by Boston Tennis Club - saw competitors arrive from across the country.

Lewis reached the last four, but was defeated by eventual winner Andrew Atkinson, from Yorkshire.

Fellow Boston club members James Newton, David Cheer and Calum McCaig also competed.

In the boys’ 18 and under event Boston’s David Cheer, Zach McDonnell-Woods and Toby McDonnell-Woods all took part.

Zach was a losing semi-finalist, but the overall winner was Lincolnshire’s William Bourne.

Sean Hodkin, another Lincolnshire competitor, was the winner of the 16 and under age group.

Boston Tennis Club participants included Toby McDonnell-Woods, Zach McDonnell-Woods, Thomas Cozens and Michael Niedermeier.

At 14 and under there was a tight three-set match in the final as Yorkshire’s Paul Jubb beat Cambridgeshire’s Vincent Chen.

Boston’s Harry Groutage and Michael Niedermeier competed in this age group.

In the girl’s 14 and unders, Boston’s Chloe Robinson, Charlotte Priestley, Lucy Hull and Sophie Burnett gave some strong opposition, but the overall winner was Aisha Brown from Cambridgeshire.

Lucy Hull and Paris Royal played in the 12 and under girls event and Jake Sherrick reached the semi-finals of the 12 and under boys’ event.

In the girls’ final there was a three-set match between Anna Buckley, from Nottinghamshire, and Jayanne Palma, from Cambridgeshire.

It was Anna who was the eventual winner.

The previous week, Boston’s William Cheer reached the nine and under final at the 93rd Bournemouth Open.

William was the runner-up, missing out in an agonisingly close final 2-7, 7-3, 4-7.
