Dear Members

The Mixed Doubles was played today between Glynis Shiraz, Gus and Marianne after the courts were finally dry at 11 am.
Glynis and Shiraz took the first set after interruption from a short rain storm.
The second set continued after a wait of an hour and a half with several members helping to squeegee the courts.
Shiraz and Glynis took the match in 2 sets.

The matches still outstanding are the Ladies Doubles and the Mens Open singles.

Championship Finals

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.
 Seniors Singles Winner Mike Wolffe and Runner Up Fred Strebel

Open Doubles winners Mike and Shiraz

Clifton Tennis Club Golf Day

The Clifton Golf Day at The Metropolitan Club was a great success.
16 players in 4 teams had a very enjoyable morning. Wendy Fredman, Nick Fredman Mike Wolffe and Guilio Marabini were the winners with 87 points just pipping Claire Van Tourenhout , Peter, Richard Goodman and Roger Trythall who had 86 points. Roger Perry was the count out winner with the highest individual Stableford points at 39. Roger Trythall had two 'two clubs'.
The tournament was followed by a simple lunch and all players said they were keen to do it again next year.
