On a cold and frosty morning, the Autumn finals day was started off at 10am by Ginnie, Lesley, Patience & Debbie who were playing in the Ladies Vets match on Court 1. As rain was forecast later in the day, the Mixed Doubles match with Chris H, Carrie, Chris W and Charlotte began on Court 5 just before midday. These 2 matches were followed after lunch by the Unisex pairings of June, Lek, Judy and Matt and the Mens Vets who were Peter W, Fio, David P and Colin.
Congratulations to all the winners (Ginnie & Lesley, Carrie & Chris H, Judy & Matt and Peter & Fio) and commiserations to those who came second!
Thanks to all the spectators and umpires, who braved the cold, and sometimes wet weather. To Maureen and her helpers for the delicious cake and soup, which was most appreciated after being out in the cold. Thanks also to Derek and Marilyn for manning the bar, Derek and Clive for taking the photos and to all the organisers in the background who helped make the day such a success. We hope that everyone enjoyed watching the matches.
It was lovely to have Sue Griffiths and her brother John there to present the new Rose Bowl that they had donated to the club, to the winners of the Mixed Doubles, and Shirley Khoja who presented the Men’s Vets trophy which she had also donated.
