Brighton Parks cup competition runs each year for top players across all the parks’ clubs.
For 2019, we just had one finalist – David Redinha was runner up in the Men’s Singles.
For finals day 21st July 2018, congratulations to Fariss Barakat and Jo Davis.
They won the mixed doubles competition for the second year running. Fariss and Jo beat Matt Hassell (Queens) and Sarah Brooking (King Alfred) in the final in two sets, 6-4 6-3
There was some great tennis played by all four players but our pair came out as deserved winners.
The 17 Hove Park members who were present in the large crowd gave our pair much encouragement and support.
Hove Park also had a representative in the veterans Mixed Doubles final with Martin Patrick playing with Alba Pascal from Rookery against Jonathan Scrivens and Marlou Schellevis from Blagss. Martin and Alba won the first set 6-4 but the Blagss pair came back to take the next two sets 5-7 4-6 in a really close match.
