On 24th June we held our Singles Semi Finals and Finals, playing for the dotty red cup. We had the knockout for the club members last Wednesday (17th June) clubnight resulting in JJ playing Tony and Peter playing Chris H in the Semis. Chris and Peter are both new and Tony and JJ are both tennis players who generally have a good 'eye', so it was an interesting match. Tony eventually won, and we now we have a new Singles Champion. It's very interesting to see the club has been going for just over 4 years now. The picture shows Loren, our President, presenting the cup to Tony (he is also a Tennis Coach!)
Our next Club match will be the triples on 30th July (last Wednesday of the month - Club Night). This is a new competition and will be rather different in that the teams will be made up of `newcomers' (people who joined this year) an intermediate player, probably one who joined last year and one more experienced player – one who joined earlier or who has been playing for ages. Players must let me know by 15th July if they want take part so we can sort out the teams, who will then play a melee on the night. We play the doubles match at the end of August with the same arrangement of strong and not so strong players.
