Tennis Club Championships Round-Up

On Saturday 14th July, the Surrey Sports Park Tennis Club held their sixth Championship Finals.

The sun was shining, the courts were ready, and the competitors eager to put their hard work to the test.

The men’s singles final saw a repeat of the previous final, Barry Keeley facing off against Christos Mavis. Despite winning the first set Keeley was unable to overcome his opponent, Mavis emerging the victor.

The women’s singles final featured a closely contested match between Fiona Hatch and Claire Elsa Peny. Some excellent tennis allowed Peny to triumph, taking both sets 6-3 and 6-2 respectively.

Next came the men’s doubles, Barry Keeley returning to court with Michael Cunningham to face Sean Graham and Nnamdi Uche. Keeley and Cunningham put on a masterclass display, winning 6-0 and 6-1 to be crowned champions.

The women’s doubles proved a more even contest, Alanna Crolla and Sian Williams playing against Annette Kratz and Claire Elsa Peny. Despite losing the opening set 2-6, Crolla and Williams recovered with back to back 6-1 wins to take the honours.

The final match of the day was the mixed doubles, Adam Godbeer and Fiona Hatch taking on Eric Jackson and Claire Elsa Peny, the latter playing in her third final of the day. However, it would be Hatch and Godbeer who took the match 4-6, 6-3, 6-3.

Congratulations to all of our championship winners, and well done to all players for providing great entertainment in very hot conditions.

Guest Notice – Face Coverings

From Saturday 19th September, it will be essential for every person in Surrey Sports Park’s communal areas to wear a face covering. This is in-line with the campus-wide policy introduced by the University of Surrey.

The policy does not apply whilst taking part in sport and exercise and activity areas are exempt.

The University considers that the responsibility of wearing a face covering sits with individuals and we expect all our staff, students and public to adhere to this requirement where possible.

Please be mindful and respectful towards members of our community who, due to exceptional circumstances, may be unable to wear a face covering; their reasons may not be visible to others.

Thank you,

Surrey Sports Park
