The La Perla Cup

Courts in action
Despite a fresh Southerly breeze, 24 participants assembled at Clifton Club House on Sunday the 2nd
of February to enter the Annual La Perla Cup competition.

Despite the wind having an upper hand at times, keen tennis was played by each of the Three Teams:
Verde, Blanco and Rosso. The 12 pairs played 3 times and the final individual scores showed who would play in the final.
Before the final Carol was the leader with 20 points, Russel the Runner up  with 18 points and Guillermo, Vanessa, Shiraz and Tobie all tied on 16 points. Tobie had to retire due to a muscle strain, which led to a tossup between the two Swappers, Vanessa and Gullermo. Unfortunately Vanessa lost the draw and Guillermo joined the final four.
This was an opportunity  for the Runner up and outsiders  to gain points to win the coveted," La Perla Grande Voucher." However after 8 games the players were all square and the original winners kept their places. Luigi kindly donated the prizes care of La Perla Restaurant.
