Well another Club Tournament ends with a very soggy finale. Unfortunately the finals day was a wash out, for the first time that I can remember. Because of the inclement weather most of the finals, even though they had to be rearranged for other times, were still played in wet conditions. Congratulations to the winners, and as always a big thank you to all the players that took part and played in such damp conditions. The tennis matches were hard fought with some excellent tennis being played.

The success of the tournament is always down to a team effort, and this year was no exception, so a big thank you to all of you involved in this event.

The Tournament wouldn't be the same without a few hiccups, but on the whole despite the poor weather conditions the tournament went well. It is the players that make this tournament happen, so I hope everyone enjoyed themselves, and I would like to thank all the finalists and spectators for their patience and understanding regarding the rearrangements that had to be made. Next year I hope it will be a bumper year for entrants, and everyone will join in this very special club event.

Gerry Ferber & Maureen Kirby tournament Sept 2011

Bank Holiday Sunday and the annual tournament in memory of two of the club’s past members saw a record turnout. Thirty players brightened up the grey afternoon with an entertaining display of skilled, competitive tennis, mixed in with the traditional quota of ‘tantrums’ and banter!

Steve Harvey, Duncan Smith and Graham Finnigan tied in 2nd place, only one point behind the winner, Russ Smith who received his trophy (and customary kiss!) from Carol Ferber.

Lyn Warburton and Hilary Burgess were runners-up to new member, Marianne Franks, receiving her first club trophy from one of our longest-serving members, Norman Kirby.

An outstanding afternoon was rounded off by a delicious BBQ and the customary home-made cakes. Our grateful thanks to Linda Sealey who organised all the refreshments and to Jane Wright who helped organise the tournament.
