JUNIOR tournaments continued at Abbey View Tennis Club over the weekend.

Finalists were decided in the under-12s and under-16 singles and doubles competitions.

Kai Makham won comfortably through the under-16s singles to face an improving Ronnie Lloyd in the final.

Lloyd will prove a formidable opponent for Makham, having recently broken into the senior league team.

Lloyd also partnered Jack Gays successfully in the under-16 doubles. The pairing will face Matt and Ben Tunnicliffe in the final.

Finals day in September see Gays and Ben Tunnicliffe meet each other in the under-12 singles final.

Tunnicliffe also won through to the doubles final by partnering Charlie Cheveau. They will play Arthur Shaw and Jacob Prestman.

Meanwhile, Abbey View teams in the senior leagues had mixed results.

In the City & Suburban League, the C team leapfrogged Alsager C with a 3-1 win.

Colin Kinshott and Frank Clark won both matches, while Frank Murrey and Ronnie Lloyd won one match and only narrowly lost their second match.

The B team won 4-0 at home to Basford C and have now drawn level with Endon at the top of Division Three.

The C team have some critical matches over the next few weeks, travelling to Endon to play a match they can't afford to lose, with only four matches remaining after this fixture.

The Abbey A team are in a battle for promotion to Division One and drew 2-2 with second-placed Florence B.

Sam Bostock and Martin Piggott won one and lost one, and likewise Dan and Ben Peaks.

The team followed up this victory with a 4-0 defeat of bottom club Florence C.

They now play Stone B away and, with this league also being extremely tight, they need to come away with a win to keep them in contention for promotion.

The men's B team, in the County League, lost 4-0 away to promotion-chasing Walton A away, although two matches were closely fought.

Dave Bennett and Ronnie Lloyd lost to a first set tie-break, going 3-1 up in the second before losing the set 6-3.

Club membership fees are being reduced by 40 per cent.
