On a sunny hot Sunday afternoon (18th May) in Hove Park our Tennis Club held the annual Jack Ellis Men’s Doubles Memorial Tournament which has taken place since 1977.
There were some extremely competitive and enjoyable matches played over 5 rounds. Once all the games had been completed the winner with 25pts was Dave Tulley (who had previously won in 2012). Joint runners-up with 24pts were Neil Dickson and John Thrussell.
Thanks to all those who took part as well as a big thank you to Phyllis Hadley who made her yearly journey down from Yorkshire to Organise the event and also thanks to Monica Muschamp for the Bread Pudding!

The next Sunday afternoon Tournament to take place will be the Ann Leegood Ladies Doubles Memorial Tournament and Neil Dickson the organiser will be making contact with our Lady members once a date has been finalised.
