This Tournament took place on Sunday 29th September on a mild early Autumn afternoon. 24 members were able to take part in some very good games of fun and competitive Tennis in which players played in 8 groups to determine who went forward to the semi-finals.
The group winners were Suzie Pettit, Jackie Corbie, Winnie Fox and Isla Tulloch from the ladies half and Tony Denman, Des O’Dell, Martin Patrick and James Denman from the men’s half. The semi-finals were closely fought out matches with Des O’Dell and Martin Patrick moving forward to the final along with Jackie Corbie and Winnie Fox. After over 4 hours of Tennis the Final was played late in the afternoon with Winnie Fox winning the ladies section with 17pts over Jackie Corbie with 16 pts. The men’s section was won by Martin Patrick with a maximum 20 pts with Des O’Dell the runner up with 13 pts.
This now brings the season nearly to an end but Paul Smith will continue to turn up on a Monday and Friday evening at 5.00 pm until we bring the clocks back later in October so members will still be able to meet and play on the hard courts for a while.
I hope you all have a good winter and still get some Tennis practice in before we meet again at our AGM sometime in February/March (date to be confirmed) and then we can look forward to another good summer like this one has been when we start up again sometime at the end of march.
Enjoy your Tennis
