Cranleigh has a lot of exciting competitions coming up for all ages and abilities! (Word document)

Well done to all the junior finalists in the club tournament. Both matches were very close and featured some impressive tennis, which bodes well for the club and the youngsters themselves. Nick Stansby (far left) beat Jack Davies, and Sophie Gallagher (far right) beat Catrina McNair in three sets.

Well done to the Under 14 Boys, who won their division in the Surrey Aegon Leagues. They lost their first match 6-0 to a very strong Leatherhead team, but recovered well to win the remaining games 4-2 against Telford, one in a walkover, and, in the final game, 5-1 away at Reigate…    

Star Junior Tom Fallis won the Open Junior tournament at Pitt Farm Tennis Club, Guildford. He beat several higher ranked juniors on the way, so now has boosted his ranking to 8.2. Well done Tom.
