Finals day 2019 will be in September to allow for the courts to be resurfaced - see sidebar for details.
The Club finals day tournament was held on Sunday 8th July. It was a hot hot day,
The menís singles was won by Darren who beat John. This is becoming an annual occurrence. John was hampered by an injured shoulder but fought well in a high quality match.
The ladies singles was won by Jackie who beat Flo. This was Flo's first appearance at a tournament final but surely not her last. She broke her racket early on but recovered and pushed Jackie hard.
The ladies doubles was to have been between Jackie/Jenny v Jan/Bridget Ė unfortunately Jan had to pull out with a sprained ankle, so Jackie and Jenny were awarded the trophy by default. This was unfortunate as it would have been a good game.
The mens plate was a sporting competition between Jim and Trevor played in the bright sunshine. Trevor came out winner.
The mixed doubles was between John/Jackie v David C/Bridget. Again, this was a very sporting competition and keenly fought with John Culley and Jackie Simpson running out winners.
The mens doubles was between Paul H/Tom B V John C/David C. John must have been exhausted by this point but he didnít show it. Tom and Paul never really got their act together never playing well enough at the same time to force the issue. John and David deserved winners.
Many thanks to those who helped set up and put away, to those who provided the excellent food, the umpires and line judges.
