Grade 3 Doubles Tournament
Our LTA Grade 3 Doubles Tournament held over the weekend of 29 and 30 April was a huge success. The players were of an exceptional standard and the spectators were treated to some spectacular tennis.
Both finals were hard fought and extremely close with the winners of the women’s’ final being Melanie Hall and Annali Olivelle who defeated Nyah Kauders and Tyra-Nicole Whyte 7-6(5), 6-4.
The men’s final went to three thrilling sets with the number 1 seeds, and top national players, Alexander Groves and Cameron Isbell defeating Keith Gilbert and Alan Jordan 6-4, 6-7(3), 7-5.
