The annual Westward Ho! Tournament took place at the Atlantic Racquet Centre (ARC) at Caddsdown last week.The event was blessed with good weather and some exciting competitive play. In the senior categories, Ian Leonard won a triple crown of veterans events, playing three finals back-to-back. On her birthday, Alison Swinton from Ilfracombe had a busy day, making three finals and winning two of them. Her husband Andrew also reached two finals. The sportsmanship award went to Gerald Sussex, who fitted in competing in the tournament with his daughters wedding. The junior tournament had children from the age of four to 18 playing events. Elina Pickerd-Barua from Cardiff won the U12 girls singles. The 11-year-old moved up an age range to win the U14 event, and in another jump in age group was runner-up in the U16 singles. She then partnered Lucy Cornish to win the 14 & under doubles - a thoroughly praiseworthy performance. The sportsmanship award went to Sonny Hutchings from Ilfracombe, who stepped in at the last minute to help fulfill some fixtures across different age groups. The award for the most improved Westward Ho! Junior was won by Katie Rowe, who made her first final.
