Easter success at Falkirk Tennis Club
The school holidays and great weather brought aspiring young players out in force over the Easter fortnight at Falkirk Lawn Tennis Club.
An Easter Camp was run on the first week of the holidays by club coaches Tim Goldie and Mark Christie with 32 juniors taking part.
With the Central Scotland Leagues recommencing in a fortnight the coaches took the opportunity to run two Tournaments over the second week of the holidays, incorporating both age groups – 12 and under and 16 and under.
Nathan Finlay narrowly defeated Lewis McCulloch in the finals of the 16 and under and Luke Sedman defeated Aiden Tran in the 12 and under group.
The 16 and under Doubles was won by Luke Ryce and Nathan Finlay with Charlotte Preston and Nathan teaming up to win the 12 and under doubles.
These two tournaments now have Falkirk Junior Tennis players well prepared for the start of the league season.
Falkirk have two teams in the 16 and under league and one Team in the 12 and under league with three senior Teams also competing.
Finally Falkirk Lawn Tennis Club is also working in partnership with Falkirk Trust over the next month in hosting The Road to Wimbledon Tournament.
This is a Tournament which is played throughout the UK and is specifically for 14 and under players to compete in.
This is a free event played at Dollar Park on Sunday, May 16 with Falkirk Coaches and members of the Club giving up their time to oversee the event.
