2019 OVSC Finals Day – possibly the hottest Finals Day on record saw some hotly contested matches on Finals Day on Saturday. Even the spectators were melting in the shade! Although they did have a bbq and ice creams to keep them going whilst watching an entertaining day of tennis. Thanks must go to Sarah Eisner for running the tournament and for everyone who helped on the day with the bbq, umpiring etc.
Additional thanks go to Silks of London for the Open Men’s and Ladies singles special prizes.
