The Wildmoor Spa League Junior Cup Final was played recently at the Wildmoor Spa & Health Club, Alcester Road, Stratford-on-Avon between last year’s champions HDA Redditch and Bidford-on-Avon Juniors. 

This was the Redditch side HDA’s sixth consecutive cup final having lost the first two but managing victory the last three years, although their pair Harvey Ravenscroft & Scott Mortimer only played in last year’s final as their previous pair were too old to enter the competition.  Bidford-on-Avon were making their first ever appearance in the final and were represented by Adam Farrow & Alfie Lovell. 

The 12 and under age competition, sponsored by the League President and Alcester man Tony King,  began back in March with four Pools of four pairs playing each other and taking it in turns to host each month.  Then in July a Play-Off Pool Night was held at Littletons Tennis Club when the four Pool winners, Henley, HDA Redditch A and B teams and Bidford-on-Avon played each other with the top two sides reaching this Cup Final. 

Watched by parents, coaches and league officials, both sets of boys were keen to do well.  However, the occasion got to the Bidford boys and the experience of the HDA A pair showed as they ran out eventual 6-1, 6-1 winners.
