The Huddersfield Open Tennis Championships saw 350 competitors playing over 400 matches across seven days at Huddersfield Lawn Tennis & Squash Club at Edgerton. 

Thongsbridge teenager Louis Hull won the men’s open championship for the second year running whilst Suzanna Thompson, 14, from Cheshire, was victorious in the women’s section. 

Becky Lee, one of the organisers, was delighted with how the tournament had turned out and said: “The event has been a huge success with the quality of the tennis once again being at an exceptionally high standard. 

“We have had people enter our tournament who live as far away as Surrey to the south or at the top of Scotland to the north. 

“Our tournament is certainly one people want to enter and we are pleased and proud it has such a standing in the tennis community.

“The sport is in a good place because so many teenagers are entering our tournament at the open age level. The Lawn Tennis Association nationally is doing a good job supporting local clubs like us to get the sport out there.”

Louis Hull beat Henry Redfern 2-0 in the final. Meanwhile, the women’s final between Suzanna Thompson and Folasade Aladese went to a tie-break game which Suzanna won 10-7 to clinch the trophy.
