A number of us were privileged to watch 3 fine finals at the Club on Wednesday the 7th Saturday the 10th and Sunday the 11th.
The Senior Doubles. The Senior Singles and the Open Doubles
I have already reported on Wednesday's match but about 10 members came down to watch Fred and Mike sling it out on Saturday.
Sling it out was right, it was like high noon at the old Saloon.
"Fearless Fred' stood his ground as " The Wily Wolffe" played his measured game. First round went to a tie break and a victory for Mike at 7-4 but it was a tight first set. Fred put up a great fight in the second set but let himself down with several double faults, and Mike was able to command the set to a 6-1 victory and take the final.
This morning at 10 o'clock Gus and Geoff took on Mike and Shiraz in a fine Open Doubles final. The final score 6-2 6-2 to Mike and Shiraz.
