Everyone was asked to play in their ‘Bounty Hats’. Some great tennis was had and there was lots of laughter on and off courts as the verandah was packed with spectators and those waiting to get on court. It was fantastic to see ‘salan hu nor bin plieh f’ lorng tiem’ (people who had not played for a long time) back up at the courts. Each family had to have eight players and they were paired off and everyone played three matches. All points were added at the end to get the winning team.
She was also known for aceing people quite regularly. Andre also sponsored another trophy with Grandmas serving ability in mind. He asked some of our senior members of the community, and former tennis players, to judge for the ‘most kased’ (most wicked) serve. Unfortunately Kik was unable to make it on the day, but Greg Quintal Snr and Robin Butterfield had their eagle eyes (as judges) tuned in all afternoon and didn’t miss a serve. After watching all players, sometimes even making trips downstairs to get a better look, and using a ream of paper with all of their notes, came up with the ‘2010 Most Kased Server’ and it was awarded to Jill Buffett.
The results were: Christians 68 – Tanya, Will & Sue Randall, James & Anna Elliott, Meg & Mitch Meers and Smudgie.
