Stratford Tennis Club held the first leg of the Royal LaPage Hiller Realty Junior grand slam this past weekend. The ‘Australian Open’ saw competition in two age categories.
The boys Under-18 category final was a family affair as brothers John and Luke Fischer faced each other for the title. The day belonged to Luke as he easily downed his older brother taking the championship, eight games to three.
The consolation title was won by Matt Vandeweil as he held off Collin Rose 8-6 to take the win.
In the boys Under-15 category, Evan Moorehead defended his title from last season. Moorehead defeated Luke McCarroll 8-5 in the final to win his second ‘Australian Open’ championship.
Ryan Lay took the consolation title with an 8-4 victory over Michael Vandeweil.
The second leg of the Royal LePage Hiller Realty Junior grand slam, the ‘French Open’, will be held at the Club on Saturday, June 15.
