Joe Woolley won three titles at the Lincolnshire Junior County Closed competition.

On his home courts at Boston Tennis Club, who were hosting the event, Joe won the boys’ under 18 and under 16 events, and also the under 18 doubles.

He beat Henry Beesley to lift the under 16 crown, before beating elder brother Dominic Beesley in the under 18 finals.

Joe teamed up with Lewis Fisher in the doubles, where he again got the better of the Beesley brothers in the final.

Other Boston members also tasted success.

Dana Kenneally-Forrester won the under 14 girls’ singles, beating Jessica Jackson.

Dana narrowly lost out to Lydia Walker in the 16 and under singles in a very close three-set match which went to a tie-break in the third set.

Victoria Beardsley was the under 12 girls’ runner-up, losing to Lincoln’s Rose Thomas.

Victoria paired up with Charlotte Priestley and successfully defended the girls’ 14 and under doubles title they won last year.

The opposition this time was Lucy Hull and Rose Thomas.

Boston’s Matthew Gedney achieved a double when he won the under 10 and under 12s titles.

In the mini tennis events, William Cheer was the runner-up in the red section and Rebecca Dickens was the girls’ runner-up

Trophies for consolation events were won by both Harry Foster and Lucy Hull.

The Peter Fincham Memorial Trophy is awarded at the discretion of the referee, and this year it was handed to Boston’s Sophie Burnett for her competitiveness in the true spirit of the game.
