Tournament Update – Jack Ellis, Club Finals Day, Jim & Marjorie Denman, Ann Leegood and Club Night Changes

Jack Ellis Memorial Mens Doubles Tournament

The Jack Ellis Memorial Mens Doubles Tournament was played on Sunday afternoon 2nd September.

Phyllis Hadley kindly came down from Yorkshire to organise the afternoon event.

We had 16 men taking part and after one or two hic-ups the Tournament got underway sometime after 2.00 pm.

There were 5 rounds of keenly contested tennis and once the matches had been finished close to 5.00 p.m Dave Tulley came out on top and accepted the Memorial Shield for the first time. Runner-up was Andy Prim and in 3rd place came Iain Stewart.

Hove Park Tennis Club Finals Day

Sunday 9th September is the Hove Park Tennis Club Finals Day starting at 10.30 am with the Ladies Singles followed as matches are completed with the Mens Singles, Ladies Doubles, Mens Doubles and finally the Mixed Doubles. Please try and come down to Hove Park at least for some of the time and watch and support those lucky enough to get through to a Club Final.

Jim & Marjorie Denman Memorial Mixed Doubles Tournament

Sunday 16th September is the date set for the Jim & Marjorie Denman Memorial Mixed Doubles Tournament which normally starts at 1.00 pm. I (Mick Cox) will be organising the Tournament so if you are keen to play please let me know as I am restricted to a fixed number. Either 8 Ladies, 12 Ladies,or 16 Ladies and the same number of Men.

Ann Leegood Ladies Doubles Tournament

On Sunday 23rd September I understand Des O’Dell is going to try and set up the Ann Leegood Ladies Doubles Tournament at 2.00 pm so if he has not been able to contact you please make contact with him. Once again we need a set number of Ladies, either 8, 12 or 16.

Club Nights

I hope as many members as possible will get involved with our end of season Tournaments and please remember that Club sessions on a Monday and Friday now start at 5.00pm until we lose the astro-courts at the end of September, and then for those really keen on the hard courts until it really gets to dark to play before the clocks go back.
