Players from all over Wales were among the winners at the annual Welsh Tennis Championships, held for the first time in Wrexham.

Almost 200 players, ranging from under-8 to adult, took part in the prestigious event, which dates back to 1927. More than 490 matches were held at Wrexham Tennis Centre throughout the week.

Winners came from Cardiff, Swansea, Wrexham, Carmarthen, Rhos-on-Sea, Mold, Colwyn Bay, Penarth, Caernarfon, Montgomery, Haverfordwest, and Pen-y-ffordd, as well as Shrewsbury and Chester.

The Welsh Championships are among the highlights of the tennis calendar in Wales,” said Tennis Wales chief executive, Peter Drew. “This was the first time the event has been held in Wrexham, and again we saw the titles going to players from all over the country, which shows we have a wide spread of talent throughout the age groups.

The championships are also a great inspiration to people of all ages who just want to play tennis recreationally. With new accessible ways to play, such as touchtennis and cardio tennis, which can be played almost anywhere, the sport is reaching a wider public than ever before.”
