The Oaks Tournament- Friday 6th June

When the wind howled and the rain swirled on Bank Holiday Monday forcing us to abandon the BBQ for “Bring a Parent Day”, we were all thrilled to see the sun come out for the Derby weekend when 14 of our tennis members took part in Round Robin tournament on the morning of Friday 6th June (Ladies Day).  Five rounds were played, each consisting of seven games, and after battling hard for two and half hours, the final ball was served at 12.30 pm to see a well deserved win for Bee McRae, followed closely in second and third place by Heather Rothwell and Jane Chant.

We welcomed another six members at lunchtime bringing our gathering to 20 and we all enjoyed lunch and a glass of wine in the clubhouse.

I would like to thank all those members who took part and particularly to Shaida for helping me with the organisation and food and to the lovely ladies who stayed behind to help with the washing up!
