2018 JIM & MARJORIE DENMAN Memorial Tournament (Mixed)

Sunday 21st October 1pm – organised by Tony Denman. The last Hove Park mixed doubles tournament of the year took place in ideal weather conditions despite the late date. All 24 players arrived without any prompting and the afternoon proved to be very enjoyable throughout with some very even matches being played in a good, friendly but competitive environment. It was good to see so many former members watching – Monica, Shirley, Phyllis, Winnie, Brian & Betty were all present and brought back memories from the past. After some very close games the semi-finalists were Darren, Andy, Neil & James (Maddox) and Rachel, Jo (Whatley), Michelle & Sophia. Andy & Jo managed to get the better of Neil & Sophia whilst Darren & Rachel won through against James & Michelle in quite close matches. The final was very exciting with some good tennis being played and Darren and Jo proved worthy winners.

There was some impressive tennis played during the afternoon and everybody gave a good account of themselves. Thank you Phyllis for organising the event and to the several other members who came along to watch. See the photos in the Gallery!

2017 Anne Leegood Tournament (Ladies doubles)

On Sunday 30th July 2pm start – organised by Neil Dickson. Another lovely afternoon in the company of the wonderful ladies of Hove Park. The Ann Leegood again produced some very classy tennis with very little between all competitors, so it proved to be a tight affair. Four players finished in a tied 2nd place with 17 points apiece – well done Margy, Claire, Morna and Sue Sinclair. However top of the tree with 20 points each were Angie and Pauline who ended up joint winners – well played to both of you. See the photos in the Gallery!

2017 JIM & MARJORIE DENMAN Memorial Tournament

On Sunday 17th September 2017 a cross section of members from various teams met to play in the annual Jim and Marjorie Denman memorial mixed doubles tournament. The weather was kind to us on this occasion which helped to make it an enjoyable afternoon for players and spectators. There was some very good and competitive tennis played during the afternoon. We started with six rounds of matches in which each player played in four rounds. The successful group winners were Jo Davis, Dinah Rae, Rita O’Regan and Margaret Oldfield from the ladies section and Darren Pollard, Stephen Milonas and Martin Patrick from the mens section.. Steve Arnold and Thomas Pollard finished equal on games won but Steve kindly let Thomas have the chance to go through. After two keenly contested semi-finals Jo Davis and Rita and Stephen and Martin went through to the final to play out two 10 point tie breaks to decide the winners of the tournament.

Once again all four finalists played very well but just as in 2015 the winners were Jo Davis and Stephen Milonas.
