Wildmoor Spa South Warwickshire Junior Cup March Round Report

The first March round of Junior Tennis Cup competition Pool matches of the Wildmoor Spa Tennis League for the South Warwickshire & District have been completed with Snitterfield, Pershore, Stratford-on-Avon, and HDA A Redditch topping their respective groups.

The competition is for teams of 12 years old and under and takes the format of five Pools of four teams who each take it in turn to host a Pool each month over the summer between March and June. Pools are played on a round robin basis with one pair of juniors from each club, one set each match (tie break at 6-6), allowing 3 sets/matches per team per pool night. The Junior Play-offs Pool night between the winning teams from each of the five pools plus the best runners-up will be held at Litlletons Tennis Club on Wednesday, 2nd July, 2014. The top two teams from this play-off Pool will then go on to a full match Cup Final to be played at The Wildmoor Spa & Health Club Tiger Turf Courts, Alcester Road, Stratford-on-Avonh on Sunday 31st August, 2014, alongside the men's Inter-League Charity Cup Final, followed by the League's Annual Presentation.

The Pool A matches at Henley-in-Arden were postponed due to rain.

Pool B played at Warwick, saw Snitterfield top their group when their players Ben Albrecht & Gwilym Davies defeated the other three sides. They overpowered hosts Warwick 6-2, then Campden B 6-3 and finally Henley B 6-3. Runners-up in the group were Henley B whose Alex Didlick & Archie Harper just beat Campden B 6-4 and then had another tight match with Warwick before emerging victors 6-3. Campden B pair Oscar Roberts & Archie Organ gained their only victory over Warwick players Tom Baker & Theo Lee 6-4.

On to Pool C played at Chipping Campden, where visitors Pershore surprised everyone by defeated all-comers. First their pair of Daniel Walker & Anthony Fordham beat their hosts Chipping Campden A 10-0 and then Evesham 10-3. Six times cup winners Shipston-on-Stour had pulled out of the competition a week before the start with insufficient players which left the Pool one team short. To make up for this the sets were extended to the first team to reach ten games instead of six and by two clear games. In the remaining match Evesham duo Ben Shepherd & Michael Macleod regained their composure to defeat Campden pair Archie Griffiths & Edward Meats 10-0.

At Bidford-on-Avon the Pool D matches were completed without problem, which is what the Stratford side had little of when they won all their matches. The Stratford duo Fraser Carr & Harry Morley-Cotterell beat Ilmington 6-0, Littletons 6-1 and Bidford 6-0. Littletons lay second in the Pool after their pair Liam Clear & Lewis Osbourne in turn beat Bidford 6-2 and then Ilmington 6-0. Bidford boys Adam Farrow & Alfie Lovell gained consolation by defeating Ilmington pair Charlie Bygate & Harry Cronshaw 6-2.

In the final Pool E played at Alcester the HDA A pair Joseph Morris & Felix Gill took all the honours defeating all three teams, Alcester, HDA C and finally HDA D all by a 6-0 scoreline. Alcester's James Clemons & Harvey Williams went on to defeat the other HDA teams 6-2 against HDA D and the same 6-2 versus HDA C. Finally, HDA C pair Daniel Meredith & Eugene Read beat HDA D duo Tom Harris & Greg Cooke 6-4.
