Alleyn’s School, Dulwich
Saturday/Sunday, 1-2 October 2022

STOP PRESS  Honours were shared at the London Open as Dan Tristao won his third Singles title at this event, beating Will Ellison in the final, while Will then got his revenge in the Doubles, playing for the first time with Ollie Arnold against Dan and his new partner Ben Beltrami. In the two fiercely contested Plates Cameron Low got the better of City of Durham’s Oscar McIntyre in the Singles, only to be beaten, playing with Louise Mathias, by Oscar & Lewis Keates in an extraordinarily close Doubles final. Special mention should be made of Ben Beltrami, who hit the ball in his Doubles match as well as any player on the fast front courts at Alleyn’s, and of Louise, fully recovered from her wrist injury in the spring, who now forms an impressive mixed doubles partnership with Cameron.
