Charnwood Satellite Performance Club do the Double! 


Sunday 14th June saw the county finals of the Leicestershire Mini Red and Orange Leagues take place at Knighton Indoor Tennis Centre.

Charnwood’s A & B teams had battled through the qualifying heats to reach the Red 8 & Under finals. Captained by Tom Lewis (Head Performance Coach) & Jill Lloyd, Charnwood A consisting of James Gossage, Riley Cliff, Stephanie Addison and Evie Lester stormed through their rounds making the final without losing a match. The B Team of Sam Godrich, Daniel Maud, Georgian Bolton and Aisha El Sayed had a tough first round against title contenders Hamilton which they won by 1 point! They then battled through to the final to face Charnwood A!

The final saw some brilliant tennis played by all but the match of the day was between James Gossage and Sam Godrich, with James coming through 10-8 in the end, playing a brilliant lob on the run at 8-8 to forge ahead.

Well done to all of the players for their fantastic play and behaviour on the day, showing great sportsmanship and fair-play throughout the tournament.  You are a credit to our club!  

With the red finished, it was time for the Orange team to start.  Matthew Howse, Louis Green, Anna Chesca and Katie Gradon played singles and doubles against Victoria Tennis Club and David Lloyd Leicestershire to contest the final. Despite some close matches the Charnwood Team managed to win every match on the day, winning the title. An awesome achievement!
