Ollie Batchelor, men’s singles winner and Peter Appleton, Club President.





On Saturday, 19th June the finalists of the Downswood LTC summer tournament played to claim this year’s titles. The weather was unseasonable cold and windy but spirits were high as the competitors took to the courts. The standard of play was excellent and all but one match went to three sets. Sixteen year old Ollie Batchelor defeated Ian Rothwell to take the men’s singles title for the third consecutive year. Ollie then teamed up with his father, Martin Batchelor, to defend their last year’s men’s doubles title bravely but were eventually overcome by David Whiteley and Gary Davison. Sisters, Kim Lascelles and Nicky Evans successfully defended their ladies doubles title, beating Susie Blair and Colette O’Grady in 3 sets. David Whiteley and Celia Reading won the mixed doubles title after another 3 set match against husband and wife team, Martin and Susie Blair.

After the tennis, 110 past and present members enjoyed the Club’s 75th Anniversary Party.
