Manders, Brooks Win Clay Court Championships

October 31, 2015

Gavin Manders was too much for Jenson Bascome to handle as he overpowered his Davis Cup teammate to become the Bermuda Clay Courts Champion today [Oct 31].

Manders — who received a $2,000 cheque courtesy of sponsors Moet & Chandon — dominated the match 6-1 6-1 to cement his position as Bermuda’s top tennis player.

Earlier, unseeded Ashley Brooks finished a wonderful week at Coral Beach & Tennis Club as she lifted the Women’s Open Singles title after defeating Erika Bove 6-2 6-1 in the final round robin match.

Brooks is also $2,000 richer as a result. The runners-up in the Men’s and Women’s Open Singles – Bascome and Jacklyn Lambert – each receive $500 for their sterling efforts.

In other finals:

  •  Manders and Lambert teamed up to win the Mixed Doubles Open against Coral Beach lead pro Neal Towlson and Caitlin Gordon 6-4 6-2;
  • Gill Butterfield and Kelly Way added to their collections of titles with the Women’s Doubles 50, beating Janet Burke-Green and Lavern Stowe 4-6 6-1 6-2;
  • Wilfred Gonsalves won the Men’s 55 Round Robin;
  • Burke-Green and Butterfield teamed up to win the Women’s Doubles 60, defeating Patricia Hawkins and Sally Hurlburt 6-0 6-2;
