Veteran's Tournament, Sunday 4th June

Veterans Tournament winners On Sunday 4th June eighteen of the less young club members (men over 45 and ladies over 40) turned out to play in the Veteran's Tournament. The weather was fine and an enjoyable afternoon's tennis was had by all.

It was a mixed doubles tournament played as a six round American tournament where partners changed each round. Unfortunately, there were nine ladies and seven men players, and Dawn Torgeresen had the disadvantage of playing as a man. Even so, she managed to win two of her rounds without dropping a game!

Ununsually, this year there were clear winners for both men and ladies, so no final playoff was required. The mens winnner was Jim Eastwood and the ladies winner was Lucy Krepa (pictured to the left).

Many thanks to Craig Amison-Smith for all his efforts in organising and making the tournmament run smoothly.
