THREE of Ventnor Tennis Club’s finals went to tie-breaks in a great day of action.
A round robin event decided the finalists and in the men’s doubles final, Keith Johnson and Jack Stapeley were pushed all the way by Elliot Rugg and David Pearce, but eventually won 6- 7, 6-2, 6-10.
Jack was also the eventual winner in a nail-biting men’s singles final against David. Jack won the tie-break with a net cord shot.
In the veteran doubles there was another well-fought tussle between David Johnson and Alison Botha, and Simon Gooden and Rosie Rodley.
Gooden and Rodley won the first set 6-7. Johnson and Botha won the next set 6-4, and romped home in third set tie break 10-2.
The ladies doubles, between Heidi Drew and Alison Botha and Linda Jones and Sophie Harris, was conceded after one set when Heidi withdrew with a wrist injury sustained in her previous mixed doubles match.
She had won this with partner Paul Rigby, beating opponents Anita and David Pearce 6-3, 6-4.
Heidi also had to withdraw from the ladies singles against Anita Pearce.
Ventnor juniors had their own tournament, with the mini green won by Daniel Harris, who beat Elliot Jones. Winning the mini orange was Austin Dye with Emily Clow runner-up. Hugh Idle was the under-12s winner, with Chris Ryan runner up.
In the under-14s tournament, Matthew Knights was undefeated throughout, with Alexander Breach runner-up.
Trophies were presented by committee member Michael Edwards, who organised the competition.
