Framlingham tournament

Hi Bloggers.
Many Sproughton players entered the Fram tournament this year and came away with great credit and a few trophies . George Brobbin entered the junior events and reached the 2nd round of the singles and had a great run in the mixed doubles going all the way to the semi-finals , then losing to the 2nd seeds . Colin Stephenson reached two finals and Joan Hassell reached one . John Tallent won the vets mixed final and lost in the final of the mens vets doubles . Going back to the juniors Toby LD won a round in the singles and finally in the adults Tamas won some rounds in the handicap tournaments also , altogether a fine Fram for all .

Junior tournaments

Hi Bloggers .
The junior singles ( olds ) has just finished and the runaway winner in the singles was again George Brobbin , - well done George you have improved tremendously throughout the year . But the big battle was for 2nd place , with 3 players gaining exactly the same amount of points . A play off ensued with Toby Lister-Draper gaining the important silver medal and James Kerrison winning bronze , the unfortunate player in 4th place was Alistair Gravett-Curl , mentions also to Henry and William who finished in their highest places ever . Well done to all those who took part .
The youngsters singles was again won by Ben with Barnaby winning the silver , a big mention to Harsh , who " played up " and did well and is a player for the future . But in the new " first years " the winner was young Lukas at 5 years old and the runner up Harrison - both excellent prospects .
Now for the doubles competition .

Sproughton juniors v Sproughton 2

Hi bloggers.
For the first time ever we had a match Sproughton 2 v Sproughton juniors played a week or two ago . It was a convincing win for the adults , but the juniors played well and I am sure learn't a lot .
Top pair for the adults was Ryland and Peter both making their debut , and the best performing junior pair was Henry and Toby . It finished Spr 2nd team 9 Spr juniors 0 , but two of the sets went to tie-breaks .
