TENNIS: Double for Dyakowski
11:00am Friday 7th September 2012 in Sport
TOM Dyakowski completed a notable double when he won both the boys under 16 and the under 18 singles titles in the Oxfordshire Wilson junior closed tournament at North Oxford Tennis Club.
In both finals, Dyakowski overcame his great rival Giles Waterson.
Evie Phillips won both the 12 & under girls ‘singles and doubles titles and was also runner up in the mixed.
There was a similar success story for Harrison Ridge, who landed the 14 & under boys’ singles and mixed doubles and was runner-up in the boys’ doubles.
It was a good day, too, for the Manson family.
Arthur came runner-up in 8 & under boys’ singles, while his sister Grace took the 8 & under girls’ singles, and brother Louis won the 12 & under boys’ doubles and mixed events.
Neil Allen, who is stepping down after refereeing the event for the past ten years, selected Ollie Crossley as the winner of the John Parsons Trophy for fair play.
Crossley had been an enthusiastic participant ands stayed on to support the event after being knocked out.
