ALCESTER A, Littletons A, Redditch HDA A and Stratford are through to the semi-final play-offs after topping their pools following June’s final round of the Wildmoor Spa Tennis League Junior Cup.

In the Pool A matches, host Alcester A pair Adam Haerle and Luke Clemons celebrated qualification by winning all three matches without dropping a single point.

They beat Henley A 6-0, Alcester C 6-0 and Henley B 6-0 to score a maximum 24 points in the Pool A table – a massive six clear of second placed Alcester C.

Alcester C also came second on the night and in the table when their pair Ben Pons and Owen Linnett beat Henley B 6-0 and Henley A 6-3.

Henley B boys Billy Rose and Adam Taylor surprisingly beat Henley A duo Jack Quantrill and Barnaby Woollen 6-3 to take third place on the night, but Henley A finished third in the overall table.

Pool B played at Littletons saw good tennis and success for the hosts’ A team on the night to qualify for the play-offs, leading the table by three points with a total of 24.

Daniel Reynolds and Fraser Bennet were in dominant mood for Littletons A as they beat Littletons B 6-1, then Chipping Campden B 6-3 and finally Campden A surprisingly 6-0.

Campden A boys Finn Watkins and George Meggeson came second in the table by bouncing back to beat Campden B 6-3 and Littletons B 6-2.

In the final match Littletons B pair Dan Baker and Robbie Clear beat Campden B duo Jack Theo and Tom Cox 6-4 in the closest match of the night.

Once again Pool C was turned on its head with surprising results as the last round was played at Evesham.

The hosts’ A team Joseph Wilson and Jamie Woodcock had been lying third in the table way off the lead, but on the night they beat allcomers.

They knocked over previous table-toppers Pershore 6-1, challengers HDA A of Redditch 7-5 and their own B team 6-0.

HDA A pair Tom Mumford and Caleb Ravenscroft then recovered to beat their closest rivals Pershore 6-3 and Evesham B 6-0.

Pershore’s Niall Guppy and Thomas Edwards beat Evesham B duo Ashley Gibson and Josh Rushby 6-1 and all this means HDA A topped the table and qualified for the semi-final play-offs with 21 points.
