Half term tournament successes for WLTC players!

Great week for WLTC member Aaron Hilsum at Parklangley Club Spring Tournament. Aaron won the Boys 18&U Singles defeating his opponent 6-1, 7-5 in the final. Aaron also reached the semi final stage of the Mens Singles before losing a close match in the third set championship tiebreak. In the same tournament, Stefan Protic reached the quarter finals of the Mens Singles having knocked out the top seed in the second round plus finished runner up in the Boys 18&U Doubles event after a semi final clash against fellow club members, Aaron and Jack Wallace. In another half term tournament at the Ipswich Sports Club, Freddy and George Ward were victorious in the Boys 14&U Doubles. Well done to all our players!
