2018 Army 'Indoor' Championships Report

The annual Army 'Indoor' Tennis Championships took place at the Aldershot Tennis Centre from 07 to 09 Feb 18. It was great to have our Event back at our tennis centre with another great turnout - very good considering several top players were away on duty or operations. There were separate singles competitions for Mens, Ladies and Masters. The holders of the Mens title from 2016 was deployed overseas so this year provided an opportunity for a new name on the trophy. The Mens final was contested by two players who have been part of the Army Team set up for a while and they both produced some high quality tennis with Lt Alex Hadcock INT taking the win over LCpl Dave Perry (REME). In the Ladies draw which included the Ladies Masters, Maj Fiona Welborn AMS beat Capt Amy Barker AGC(ETS) to retain the title for the third time in a row; great acheivement. The Mens Masters Event saw new faces in the final as the 'favourite' was not available to fight for the title. With a great final Brig Darrell Amison overpowered Lt Col 'Geordie' Haigs and took the win claiming the title for the first time. The trophy for Best Newcomer was awarded to Pte Aaron Mayhead (R.ANGLIAN). The 2018 results and scores are as follows:

- Mens Final: Lt Alex Hadcock beat LCpl Dave Perry (REME): 6 - 3 & 6 - 2

- Ladies Final: Maj Fiona Welborn AMS beat Capt Amy Roberts AGC(ETS): 6 – 0 & 6 – 1

- Mens Masters Final: Brig Darrell Amison beat Lt Col 'Geordie' Haigs: 7 – 6 & 6 – 1

​​- Best Newcomer: Pte Aaron Mayhead (R.ANGLIAN)
