Wallis Cup Finals

The Winter Wallis Cup Mixed doubles tournament took place at Finals Day on Saturday.

Angela and Graham Woods played Carol Littlewood and Graham Foote and in a first for the Wallis Cup tournament Angela and Graham won the tournament as well as winning the trophy (again!) for the most matches played.  Well done to Angela & Graham.

Thanks also to Frank Wallis and Sarah Eisner who support and organise the tournament throughout the cold, winter months.

The tournament which is played on a handicap system, is a great way for all members to play some competitive tennis against other members.

Oxshott Tennis Finals Day Successes

Oxshott Tennis Finals Day Successes

The sun shone, the bbq sizzled and the tennis was superb at the Tennis Finals Day at Oxshott on Saturday!

First to take to court was the Mens Singles and Ladies Singles matches.  It was great to see youngster Nathan Richelle playing relative youngster Jonnie Gabriel in a hard fought 2 sets which saw Nathan the eventual winner.

Meanwhile, Lynne Hunt and Vikki Arkinstall slogged it out in a thrilling 2 sets and championship tie break match.  In blisteringly hot conditions, they were slightly helped by a cooling breeze, and their umpire Rod Stevens who also turned ball boy!  Lynne was the eventual winner.

The Mens Doubles saw Jonathan Fourie and Steven Morris beating youngsters Dom Morley and Jonnie Gabriel, whilst in the Ladies Doubles in a repeat, but reversal of last year’s final result, Vikki Arkinstall and Claire McIntosh beat Lynne Hunt and Nicky Lemon.

The Mixed Doubles was won by Lynne and Ross Hunt.

Vets Mens Doubles was won by Graham Crowder and Ian Marsh.

The Wallis Cup Finals were also played but are reported on separately.

Congratulations to all winners and thank you to everyone who came to support on the day.

We would like to thank all those who entered a team into the League, including club sponsors Downs Solicitors, who despite entering for the first time, played extremely well and appeared to enjoy the experience.  There was some great competitive play as well as alot of fun and banter!

This year we had dry weather througout and the final evening gave it a true atmosphere of playing in the South of France!

For the first time in a while a Ladies Singles event took place which was tremendous.  Nicky Osborne was victorious over Ri Odulate.  Hopefully more ladies will take part next year and we will continue to see the more ladies joining the squash section.

Tennis Winter 2017/18 Leagues Round-up

Team Tennis Successes For Oxshott

Maybe not Wimbledon, but Oxshott tennis teams celebrated fantastic results for Oxshott’s Mens and Ladies 1st Teams with both winning the top Divisions of the Winter Woking League this winter.  Superbly captained by Ali Anderson and Gillian Alcock both teams played great tennis to beat local clubs and win the leagues.   The mixed 1st team captained by Claire McInstosh, narrowly missed out on first place but came runners up in the top division.

The Ladies 1st team not only won the Woking league but also under the captaincy of Alison Crawford, secured top place in Division 7 of the Surrey Winter league.

It was a great achievement for the tennis teams at the club and hopefully this success will continue through the summer season.
