The 2018 senior club championships were held on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 April in glorious tennis-playing weather.
Although there were slightly fewer entries than previous years and no Women’s singles competition there was some great tennis played in a fantastic atmosphere and Roger Parker once again did some stirling work on the barbeque as only he can!

The number two seed, Jimmy Tie, beat the top seed, Simon Ross, in the final of the Men’s Singles in a close encounter with a very long opening set.
Simon combined with Giang Do to win the Men’s Doubles, beating Luke and Theo Piercey in the final.
Men’s Doubles finalists
The Women’s Doubles was exceptionally close with all three combinations winning a match each in the round-robin format. In the end the winners were decided on sets with Janina Pawlak and Glenda van Drimmelen emerging victorious.
