Give It Your Max Tennis Tournament

Won by Kristian Hunter (D 99-04) in nostalgic result

After a 3 year break due to the Covid situation, this year's annual Bradfield Society Mixed Doubles Tennis Tournament took place on Sunday 24 April 2022. It was hosted at the College Clay Courts with donations going to Give It Your Max, in memory of Old Bradfieldian Max Stotesbury (H 99-04). The event was supported by a mixture of parents playing with their children who are studying at Bradfield, Old Bradfieldians and their partners and friends including Kirsty Richardson (Hamilton-Smith K 97-99), Annie Stratford (J 95-97), Dan Mulligan (C 93-98), Freddie Stotesbury (C 93-98), Brook Stotesbury (C 95-00) and the youngest player 10 year old Noah, who is the son of Old Bradfieldian Anna Moss-Gibbons (I 95-97).

The weather was perfect for the event and everyone enjoyed playing their games in the sunshine. The tournament was eventually won by Kristian Hunter (D 99-04) who had been Max's tennis partner when they were at Bradfield and who played in the tournament with his mum Suzanne, who is a former parent. Suzanne said she had not been back to Bradfield since Commemoration in 2004 on the day Kristian had left the College!

Credit to the talented Longfield family who played in both semi-finals - father Simon and daughter Pippa pairing together - with mother Alison and son Marcus winning their Semi-Final match and making it into the Final, but losing in the final set to Kristian and his mum. It was a nostalgic close to the tournament with Freddie Stotesbury awarding the prizes and everyone went home happy with their performance and planning to practice and bring along their friends next year. It is most certainly a lovely family friendly tournament with small children and dogs all welcome. We look forward to hosting it again next Summer.
