Some great tennis played last weekend with all who were competing for the ‘Tourist Ministers Cup’. This comp was a draw for partners so there were some interesting combinations pulled out of the hat. 3 Pools of mixed doubles were played on Saturday. Pool 3 - Rossco and Mollie Sanderson easily winning all 3 of their matches and taking out 1st place against Loppy and Michelle Saal, Hubert Finney and Beachy, Bob Little and Coral Rowston. Pool 2 – Anna Elliott and Norris winning all 3 of their sets against Phil McDowel and Mai Nobbs, Charles Blackwell and Julie South, Alan McNeil and Noelle Burrell. Pool 1 – Trev Gow and Tanya Randall wiping out the opposition of Peter Swynenburg and Amanada Cribb, Lew Quintal and Debra Gilmore.
Some great sets of Mens doubles with Spuddy Buffett and Peter Swynenburg just taking out the trophy by 2 points from James Elliott and Hubert Finney. Other players in the Mens, Loppy Christian and Barnabas Shelley, Bob Little and Rossco Quintal, Zach Sanders and Charles Blackwell.
Close games with the Ladies as well. Julie South and Tanya Randall (photo L) winning by 2 points, runners up Coral Rowston and Anna Elliott. Emma Wright and Mai Nobbs along with Mollie Sanderson and Beachy also played well.
As it was the ‘Tourist Ministers Cup’ it was only fitting that our Minister for Tourism, Andre Nobbs be welcomed up to the Club to present the trophies and prizes to the winners. Many thanks to Andre for his time and sense of humor. We look forward to him joining in the next comp. Congratulations to the winners and to all who joined in for a great weekend of Tennis.
