OLLIE Crickmay and Emily Watts were in fine form as Rayleigh Lawn Tennis Club hosted their annual club tournament finals.

Club history was made as Crickmay, 14, became one of the youngest winners of an adult event.

The teenager, who was partnering club coach Ryan Wilson, clinched the men’s doubles title by beating Dave Barham and Giles Brickwood 6-4, 7-6 in the final.

Crickmay went on to win the 21 and under singles, the boys 16 and under singles and then partnered Joe Beeching to triumph in the 18 and under doubles final.

Just 24 hours earlier, Crickmay also partnered Emily Thompson to claim the Essex closed mixed doubles 14 and under tournament at Thorpe Bay.

Meanwhile, Watts recorded her seventh ladies singles title in succession and notched a hat-trick of wins for the first time.

Watts retained the mixed doubles trophy, when playing alongside Steve Higgins, and regained the ladies doubles title with Dawn Higgins.

The ladies singles crown also belonged to Watts thanks to a 6-1, 6-3 victory over Amelia Farmer.

Elsewhere, Dave Barham held onto the men’s singles title after beating Wilson over three sets and Steve Higgins followed up his mixed doubles win with Watts by conquering the vets event with wife Dawn Higgins.

It was a day to remember for Jim Reid as he got his hands on his first club tournament crown.

Partnering John Pearson, Reid won the men’s vets doubles.

Toni Bracci - competing alongside Steve Farmer - and Paul Clark were also first time winners as they tasted victory in the over-80s handicap and over-35 singles respectively.

The ladies vets doubles event was won by Lucia Bigden and Nicky Savage, who saw off Dawn Higgins and Gill Whittington.

Ryan and Ralph Wilson were 10-6 winners against Dave and Jenny Barham in the family handicap.

In the junior events, Thompson enjoyed an outstanding weekend as she won the girls 16 and under singles, beating sister Sophie, teamed up with Matthew Pearson to triumph in the 14 and under doubles final and then followed in the footsteps of Amelia Farmer to become the second girl to win a boys event.

Thompson beat Diwij Saigal in the 14 and under boys singles.

Eleanor Harrin, Isaac Pearson, Grace Kelleher, Zach Bradon, Lilly Murray, Lewis Cardy and Ayurda Saigal were also triumphant.
