Whatever the final outcome it has been a successful,enjoyable season. Peter and myself played in all 5 matches and managed to win 8 out of 10 matches -well played Peter.

Despite the dreadful weather forecast all matches were completed with only one (lengthy) rain delay. The champions for 2011 are:

  • Ladies singles - Saidhanya
  • Men's singles - Dishan
  • Juniors - Huw and Charlie
  • Ladies doubles - Saidhanya and Lucy
  • Men's doubles - Dishan and Peter
  • Mixed doubles - Saidhanya and Neville

Sarah & Neville won 6-2, 6-2 vs Lucy & Steven

One black eye, a dodgy calf , broken strings and some good tennis were served up to several hardy spectators on Monday night. Despite Lucy's warming up accident and Steve's calf strain, they put up a spirited performance but in the end Sarah and Neville prevailed, the key moment being Sarah's game-winning string-busting volley mid way through the second set!

Many thanks to Sarah for organising a successful tournament and to all it's participants.
