Aegon British Tour Fast4 Stirling

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

The third leg of the British Tour Fast4 circuit in Scotland was played on Sunday at the Gannochy Centre, Stirling.

Aberdeen’s Ross Martin, runner-up in the first event at Westburn and top seed at Stirling, won the men’s title with a final 4-1 1-4 [10-7] win over third seed Charlie Miller, a member of the Newlands club and winner of the second leg at Strathgryffe in July.

Edinburgh’s Maisie Wood, seeded 3, won the women’s championship with a 4-0 3-4(4) [10-4] victory in the final over unseeded Catriona MacIntosh from Busby.

The fourth and final event of the 2017 circuit in Scotland will be hosted by the  Western Tennis Club in Glasgow on 18th-19th November.

Tournament organiser Olwyn Roy remarked on the number of good matches played throughout the day with many being decided by the sudden death match tie-break third sets.

Aegon British Tour FAST4 events were introduced in 2016 to allow adult players who may have previously played at a high standard (such as players that have played at good club level, county, national or international standard) the opportunity to compete in one day competitions whilst fitting this around their busy lifestyles. Many adult players are not able to compete in current week long Tier 1 and Tier 2 British Tour events due to work commitments. The Tier 3 competitions allow players to play more matches in a short period of time.
