The 92nd Woking Open Sponsored by Trident Honda concluded with finals day on Saturday after a scorching week of tennis.
Kicking off with 9U Boys and Girls events, along with 1st round of Men's and Ladies Singles on the Sunday, nearly 300 players then descended on the Club to compete in our hottest ever tournament. Temperatures reached over 100 degrees fahrenheit on the Thursday, making things challenging for both players and officials!
The 9U event saw an all Surrey boys Semi-Final line up (inc. Woking's Samuel Mhizha), with Mateo Romay (Esher LTC) eventually winning the title after some fantastic tennis all round. The girls event also saw home success. Yasmin Griffin was narrowly beaten in a 3-set Singles Final by Hertfordshire's Sofiia Kurko, but Annabel Fletcher then teamed up with Surrey team mate Jessica Lee to win the 9U Girls Doubles.
After early rounds of Singles worked through the ever rising temperatures, various Doubles events came to their conclusion on Friday, with the 10U event finishing in a Woking one-two, as Samuel Mhizha & Buster Meurisse beat Eddy Wong & Rory Barr in an entertaining final (Hannah Pye also finished runner-up in the Girls 10U Doubles).
Finals day on Saturday was a stark contrast to the rest of the week, with rain moving in to delay the start by 45 minutes. The 8U event was first up, with some damp, but still closely fought matches concluding with Woking's Annabel Fletcher finishing a very unlucky 2nd after drawing on points with Essex's Chloe Shear, but losing out on head-head result.
The Men's final was an eagerly anticipated affair after unseeded Club Champion Hugo Plummer knocked out the no.2 seed in an earlier round treach his first Woking Open final and face local rival, Jamie Boden (no.3 seed). A wonderfully entertaining show of baseline brilliance from Boden and net play perfection from Plummer eventually finished with a sublime cross-court pass from Boden as he took the title 6-3 7-5.
Home singles success wasn't far away though, as Sam Cawood took victory in the 12U Boys final, with a tense 10-8 third set win against Dylan Van Rensburg.
Finals day then finished with a great mix of doubles encounters for the crowds, as Boden won the double when he teamed up with Taylor Papworth to win the Men's doubles title with a 3rd set victory over Woking's Alex Hackett and local Coach Gary Stanford. Club pairing Issy Betts and Georgie Price then finished runners-up in the Ladies doubles, narrowly losing out to Genevieve Doe and Amelia Monteith.
Some fantastic achievements over the week and lots of great tennis to remember. A big thanks to the new sponsors Trident Honda, as well as all the Club staff and LTA officials that made it another very successful year. See you next year!
