PETER MOORE RETAINS HIS EDINBURGH WHEELCHAIR TENNIS TOURNAMENT TITLE

 

Peter Moore from Glasgow retained his title at the second Edinburgh Wheelchair Tennis Tournament in a hard fought rematch of last year’s final.  Peter fought back from one set down to eventually beat Keith Thom (Dumfries) in a third set match tie-break.  Keith can be very proud of his performance as he pushed Peter a lot closer than last year, no doubt Keith will be hoping for third time lucky in 2013.

 

Keith got his revenge in the final of the doubles when he teamed up with Steve Crompton (Southampton) to beat Peter Moore and James Shaw (Nottingham). Steve Crompton (Southampton) won the ‘B’ Division singles beating James Shaw (Nottingham) in the final.

 

Wheelchair players from Southampton, London, Preston, Nottingham & Birmingham joined players from throughout Scotland in a great weekend of wheelchair tennis held at Craiglockhart Tennis Centre in Edinburgh last month.  The players would like to say a big thank you to Edinburgh Leisure, Awards For All, Tennis Scotland, Activcity, Highland Spring and the Tennis Foundation for supporting the event.

 

Thanks also to Linda Birrell of the East Of Scotland LTA for refereeing and to Dan Maskell’s daughter, Robin Charlton for presenting the prizes.
