Open 2017 Tournament Director, Craig Amison-Smith This piece would not be complete without, once again thanking Julia Freeman for the way she refereed the entire tournament. Also, my thanks go to Jim Eastwood for his expertise on the IT side of things, and keeping the Abingdon Tennis Club web site up to date with all the competition details.

Finally, thank you to all the competitors for the excellent tennis they put on. There were many matches that were played to a high standard. The sportsmanship was again first class. Thank you to all of you for making the Abingdon Open Tennis Tournament 2017 another week to remember for a long time.

I would also like to again extend my thanks to Bev and Bee for providing the refreshments for the tournament. The morning bacon sandwiches and the lunchtime hot dogs and burgers were again a success.

We hope to see you all again for the 2018 Abingdon Open, which will run from August 13th to August 16th.
