Two new Finalists to brake up the Jones brothers grip of recent years,
Saw Nick Burgess overcome Graham Hayden 3-0. Nick's awesome power was too much for Graham who found the very warm airless, atmosphere to his disadvantage, he tried to slow Nick down with a mixture of lobs and subtle boasts, but to no avail, the ball was just to warm and Nick powered his way to victory. Scores 15/8, 15/8, 15/7
Freddie Limer Club Championship 2016
A new name was unveiled in this years final, 16 year old Harry Burr, son of last years currently injured champion Nick Burr, who was up against Ben Prokop last years runner-up.
Zjelko Ivos should have been in the final, however he sustained an injury at home and was unable to take part. As Nick Burgess his defeated semi-final opponent was already in the Vets Final, it was decided that the 1st Semi-final line-up, which had yet to be played, would now become the final.
Ben got into his stride very quickly and took the first game comfortably. Young Harry roared back to take the next 2 games keeping things tight, as Ben found the very warm and muggy conditions not really to his liking, it meant the ball was flying around, and drops shots bounced to far back and Bens lethal lobs would not die at the back. The ralies were long and energy sapping, Harry was relentless and kept Ben working hard, forcing errors. In the fourth game Harry's incredible pace and energy dipped and Ben prospered to take it into a decider.
A very tight and equal start was, dramatically changed when Ben made a series of quick errors for Harry to take the lead, which Ben could not peg back, Harry was not making any mistakes, and Ben felt he had to try and force the play, which caused unforced errors as Harry's extended his lead, Harry took the title on his 2nd match ball, a riveting 60 minute match came to an end. Both players were close to exhaustion, and those watching marvelled at their incredible physical prowess.and athletic ability. scores > 8/15, 15/9, 15/9, 7/15, 15/9
