Tennis- American Tournament

social tournament marks opening of the grass courts for 2022...


American Tournament Report
On Saturday 14 May, the Tennis Section held a “round robin” Mixed Doubles American Tournament to mark the 2022 opening of the grass courts. It was the first such event for three years due to the pandemic.
Twenty six members took part, luckily 13 men and 13 women as it turned out, and played six matches of seven games. Halfway through there was tea and cake to give everyone a break and a chance to “re-fuel”!
The event came to a close around 6.30pm with Lisa Harrison as the winning lady and Pieter Vermeer as the winning man, both receiving a tin of new balls for their efforts!
The weather was very kind and everyone enjoyed a great afternoon’s social competitive tennis in the sunshine! £70 was raised towards club fundraising too, so a big thank you to all those that participated and a special thanks to those who helped to put it together.
