So concluded our Summer  Club Championships for 2018! The delay caused by resurfacing when it would normally have been played. Our Ladies Singles champion of 2017 Dalanda Bah successfully defended her title (for a total loss of only two games in six sets) by proving too strong for first-time finalist Jessica Mackasey. The mens final proved to be much closer and because of the weather was held over two days. Heavy rain interrupted Saturday’s play with Ronan Le Mestre leading by 7-6, 4-2. When play resumed on Sunday Seamus Tucker (our Winter champion) fought back to take the second by 7-5. The third set was extremely close and full of excellent rallies. Finally one of Ronan’s Wawrinka-like backhands screamed down the line and out of the valiant Seamus’s reach. Congratulations to both and especially to Ronan on becoming our first French club singles champion after over ten years of membership.
