Collapse AllLeith Links Singles - Round 10 | Thursday 29 August 2019 to Wednesday 23 October 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 25 September 2019)

Sunshine on Leith tennis was part of the story of this autumnal round. Thanks for your support and dedication to park tennis. We hope to do it all over again in the early spring (when we trust the sun will also be shining). In the meantime have a great Christmas and a very happy New Year!

Group Summary:

With John out early and Callum not getting going, matches were hard to come by in the group, so well done to those who did get on court and of course to Ryan who played three matches, won them all and bolstered his winning position by earning his bonus points too! Jo worked hard for his runner's up position and his two wins included an epic against Alison who more than deserved the point won in the loss! Iain grabbed third place with his win against Emilia, and left the question hanging - where might he have ended in the table if he had played more matches?

  1. Ryan Hessell [W3] 8 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Jo Sohn-Rethel [W2, L1] 4 RUNNER UP
