The final (June) round of Junior Tennis Cup competition Pool matches of the Wildmoor Spa Tennis League for the South Warwickshire & District Area have been completed with the teams topping their Pools and qualifying for the play-offs in July. They are Henley-in-Arden A or HDA B of Redditch in Pool A, Littletons A in Pool B, Bidford-on-Avon in Pool C, and HDA A of Redditch in Pool D. 

Pool A, hosted by Warwick was unfortunately rained off and will be played the night before the Semi-Final Play-Offs in July.  The two top teams are both in contention as Henley A lead by a solitary point with 17, with HDA B Redditch just behind on 16 points.  Either one could qualify for the play-offs?  The other two teams, Henley B with 12 points and Warwick with 9 points cannot qualify, but could indeed make a difference as to who goes through, depending on their match scores against the top pairs? 

Pool B was played at Littletons Tennis Club and saw hosts Littletons A undefeated and going through to the play-offs comfortably with 23 points, three more than runners-up Chipping Campden A.  Littletons A pair brothers Oliver and Jacob Medley opened with a 6-2 win over contenders Campden A.  They then beat sister side Littletons B 6-1, before finishing off with a 6-1 victory over Chipping Campden B.  Campden A pair finished runners-up after their duo William Smith & J.J. Coleman beat sister side Campden B 6-0 and hung on to second spot even though they had to award a 6-0 walkover win to their opponents Littleton B when one of the Campden A players had to leave the tournament early.  In the final match Littletons B boys Robbie Clear & John Blakely defeated Campden B boys Joe Lindner & Alex Alexiou 6-1.  

Stratford-on-Avon hosted Pool C, but the leaders Bidford-on-Avon maintained their one hundred per cent record to qualify for the play-offs with a maximum 24 points and 9 points clear of the next placed team.  Bidford boys Adam Farrow & Alfie Lovell again overpowered all three opponents starting with hosts Stratford 6-1, then Pershore 6-0, before defeating Evesham 6-3.  While Evesham finished second on the night, it was Pershore’s Alfie Hoyle & Jack Marsh who finished the group in second place with 15 points.  They beat Stratford 6-0 but lost to Evesham 6-3.  Evesham lads Joseph Williams & Jamie Woodcock then also beat Stratford pair Dylan Jones & Jack Seabourn 6-2.   

Finally Pool D was played at Alcester Tennis Club and once more saw the reigning Champions HDA A again cruise to victory in all three of their matches.  Last year’s champion pairing of Harvey Ravenscroft & Scott Mortimer overcame all opposition Alcester A, Alcester B and Ilmington.  They beat Alcester A 6-2, Alcester B 6-2 and Ilmington 6-0.  This like Bidford in Pool C gave them the maximum 24 points, although only a 5 point lead over the second side Alcester A.  The latter’s lads Adam Haerle & Luke Clemons went on to beat Alcester B 6-1 and Ilmington 6-0.  Alcester B boys Charlie Derby & Chris Hillman came third in the table when they beat Ilmington 6-0.
