Finals Day 2017

Always a great day of tennis, our annual Finals Day didn’t disappoint even if the weather did at first. Those that came were treated to very high quality matches especially the Men’s Singles and Doubles’ finals which were the most competitive in years, Mike edging out Simon in the singles 6-4 in the third set and teaming up with Chris to narrowly win 7-6(9), 7-5 in the doubles against Srdjan and Alan. Erika regained her Singles title this year and went on to win the mixed alongside Chris whilst the vets Singles and Doubles were very competitive as were the plate events. We crowned winners new and familiar before enjoying Alan’s superb BBQ ably assisted by a team of helpers. Keerti and Kashvi ran a great raffle before we all retired to the bar for some celebratory (and commiseratory) drinks. We hope everyone was ok the next day….?

The club would like to thank Chris Keating (tournament organiser), Dave Martin and everyone that helped him set up and clear away, the chair umpires, Alan Hancock and his BBQ team, Keerti Sethia and daughter Kashvi (raffle organisers), the players and of course the crowd of supporters.

We shortly will have a promotional video available to view  – thanks to Steven for filming and a selection of photos will be available to view online and in the clubhouse soon.

Here’s to a great rest of season.

See you on court.
