Hi all tennis players:
Please find above the link to the 2014 Tennis Calendar.
15 players signed up for the Mens’ Singles Tournament 2013, played last weekend in a very competitive and fun mood. The winner was João Magalhães who beated Pedro Lagoá, in a reedition of last year’s final. Finally, just a word to say that all players who lost in the first round played a consolation tournament, which was won by Francisco Taveira.
Last weekend was played the mixed doubles tournament, even though the absence of several players due to last minute injuries and other reasons… Anyway, and as usual, this was a very amusing tournament which was won by Matilde Lagoá and Luís Pinheiro Torres (Jr.) who defeated Susana and Pedro Lagoá 6-2, 6-0.
This last weekend took place both women and men’s doubles tournaments: according to the majority of opinions, it seems that everyone had a good time and some few inovations were positively commented.
Regarding the winners, Chris Walsh and Sarah Capell (ladies doubles) and Fredrik Oxelfelt and Pedro Lagoá (men’s doubles) truly deserved their respective titles – congratulations!
Today, one of our younger players, Francisco Taveira, won 6-2, 6-2 against Nick Holland, in a generation’s duel. Francisco promisses to keep climbing the ladder, so be aware!
It has been necessary to make a number of alterations to the 2013 events calender, notably, the men´s singles competition will now be held June 15-16th and the Mixed doubles 25-26th May.
The adult/junior tournament has been moved to May 4th and a sign up sheet is already available on the notice board.
