Riverside's Strong County Closed
Cam flies the Riverside Flag high at County Week
The county closed presents the opportunity for all players from Wiltshire to test themselves against other players in the county. The combination of lots of ranking points on offer and the title of county champion - makes the tournament hotly contested by players up and down the county each year.
This year the tournament was held at Royal Wooten Bassett tennis club. Riverside had a good showing with ten players entered across various age groups and events, many of our players competed in multiple events and made up a good chunk of each draw!
There were some good displays all round. The standout performances were from Hari Chowdhury and Cam Simpson. Hari reached the semi finals in both the under 16’s and 18’s boys singles. Cam went one step further reaching the finals in both events but unfortunately just lost out in the finals. He did however win the under 16’s doubles with his partner Michael.

The tournament rounds off a successful summer season for Riverside. Many of our players have picked up silverware on the Junior Circuit whilst others have just started their journeys when it comes to competing. We had four players who had the opportunity to compete at Wimbledon on the famous grass through the play your way to Wimbledon competition, who all had a brilliant time and have come away inspired to play more. Our best juniors will all be in action over the finals weekend on the 3rd and 4th September so keep an eye out for any future superstars. All of the success we’ve had this year wouldn’t be possible without our excellent coaching team.
