15 February 2015: Elena Baltacha Mini-Red Series (Event 2)
Sunday saw Elena's Academy host the 2nd Qualifying event in the Elena Baltacha Mini-Red Series.
In the Girls Tournament a hotly contested event with Imogen Callahan up against EBAT player Alana Bristow in the final. Their group match finished on a deciding point with Imogen coming away victor with a 10-9 win. It was a similar story in the final with Imogen recording another victory with a 14 - 12 win. 3rd & 4th place went to two EBAT players with Imogen Mackender & Gigi Gebhard running out 3rd & 4th respectively.
Some great tennis also over in the Boys Tournament. The Semi-Finals had Daniel Franco-Key up against Freddie Clark, with Daniel victorious to reach his second EBAT final in a row. In the second Semi-Final, EBAT players Alister Hadzihev & Elliott Thomas battled hard with Alister eventually coming through 11-9. A mammoth 3rd & 4th place play off match then saw Freddie & Elliott trade well with both players saving multiple match points before Freddie eventually won 18 - 16. The Final took place between Daniel & Alister, with Daniel claiming his second EBAT title in as many months.
A really enjoyable tournament with great support from all the players and parents which is great to see.
We look forward to the next tournament in the series which takes place on Sunday 22 March 15. You can book your players place on-line via the LTA website or alternatively contact us. EBAT Update
