Finals Day 2015

Another successful Finals Day for Denby Dale Tennis Club. We were very lucky with the weather (the previous day and the following day were cold and wet).

Please visit the Photo Galleries page for more pictures.

In the morning the Ladies Final saw Carly Hoyle playing multiple champion Karen Seddon for the second year in succession. In a closely-fought battle Karen eventually emerged as the winner 7-5, 6-2.


In the men’s doubles final John Hoyle and Stephen Pye played Michael Figg and Mike Winch. There were some amazing rallies and few games were won easily. The combination of youth and experience prevailed with the two Mikes winning 6-4, 6-4.


In the afternoon Men’s Singles Final, Michael Figg faced Alex Harris. This was another exciting game with extended rallies and incredible shots. Michael, perhaps tired after his exertions in the morning, eventually succumbed to Alex 6-4, 6-4.


The Ladies Doubles saw Karen Seddon appearing again. She was partnering Karen Taylor and they were playing Alyson Ronan and Krista Robinson. The long first set was neck and neck until Alyson and Krista pulled away to win 7-5. They established control in the second set and went on to win that one 6-3 to claim the Ladies Doubles title.


In the final match, Stephen Pye and Alyson Ronan were in action again in the Mixed Doubles. They faced Lisa Redfern and Jonathan Robinson and soon found themselves behind, losing the first set 6-1. Lisa and Jonathan pressed home their advantage and took the title by winning the second set 6-2.


Congratulations to all the finalists.

A large number of spectators came along to watch the matches in the sunshine and enjoy the excellent buffet lunch. Thanks for all the contributions to the spread.

And thanks to all who contributed to another successful Finals Day.
