The line-up for the under-18 tournament

The grade-five tournament was organised using a compass draw format of eight players. Each match comprised two short sets to four games with a tie-break where necessary.

The bronze medal was won by Alistair Duncan (West Worthing), who beat Harrison Smith from Preston 4-0, 4-1 in a very entertaining third-fourth play-off match.

Jack Ison from David Lloyd Southampton won gold by beating Timmy Horn (Woking) 5-3, 4-0 in a final of excellent-quality tennis.

Tournament referee Peter Cook said: “Once again, the standard of tennis was outstanding and, despite the very high temperatures, we were treated to some fantastic matches of an exceptionally high standard.”
