This year’s Jackamans’ tournament at the Felixstowe Lawn Tennis Club, Bath Road, Felixstowe, was a resounding success. The event took place over a week commencing 15th August and 170 players were involved. Competing in 30 different age group events; from the Mini Tennis events red, orange and green for the under 10’s and under 12’s, 14’s, 16’s and 18’s; to the over 18 Open age group event. Further competition was added this year for the under 11’s – to help younger players progress from Mini Tennis to “full ball” tennis.
This is an important LTA-recognised Grade 3 regional event and as such always attracts top players from throughout East Anglia. The week saw some highly competitive and close matches and although the weather could have been better, play wasn’t disrupted too much.
