The Quorn Family Tennis Cup

Totally Tennis hosted The Quorn Family Tennis Cup on Saturday 7th May at the indoor centre in the War Memorial Park. The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) event, run by coach Nick Dingwall, was a parent and child tournament that give families the opportunity to compete in an informal and fun competition. The event was also an opportunity to promote playing tennis more frequently and eat healthy food as part of an active lifestyle.

This particular event was a Red Ball (Juniors 10 and under playing with family member aged 18 or over) competition with the winners of each event throughout the country earning the opportunity of a day out at a Quorn Family Tennis Cup event held on the qualifying weekend of a LTA grass court major event in May or June. Each pair will have the chance to play against other winners on the day as well as watch the professional players in action.


Eight pairs entered the tournament which was run as a round robin event, with the top two winners from each box going through to the main draw semi-finals and the bottom two pairs going through to a consolation semi-finals. The winners were Hayden Cummings and his dad Ben with Luke McDermott and his father finishing as runners up. The Cummings, who were joined in the event by younger and older sons duo Ellis and Jordan, received prizes and will now compete in the regional event. All participants received a certificate for entering and some goodies of their own, a fun day was had by everyone.image2
