Open Over 45’s Mixed Event

Over 45’s tournament 2017

Over 45s Open Mixed Doubles
The 5th Over 45s event was held on Sunday, 13th August in lovely weather and proved to be even more popular this year with 27 couples trying to get their names on the trophies. As with previous years, lessons are learnt that can be applied the following year to improve the day for everyone.

Main Draw Finalists

After morning and afternoon round robins and semi-finals, Tina Wall and Shane Horsell beat Katie Ballard and Paul Harris in the final of the main competition, with Louse Horner-Baggs and Jonathan Vickers making it a clean sweep for CTC by beating Val and Graham Parenfus in the plate final.

Plate Finalists

It was pleasing to note that fifteen other clubs were represented on the day. It is possible that we could reach our maximum entries of 28 pairs for the seven courts and, who knows, there might a waiting list in the future!
Big thanks must go to Judith, Ben and Kate Potter for their hard work on the day, and before, dealing with the catering and administration, enabling the day to run as smoothly as possible.

Over 45’s tournament 2016

Another successful Over 45’s Tournament was held on Sunday, 21st August. It was the fourth such annual event to be arranged and the number of players has increased year on year.

It was good to be joined by members of local clubs but players also came from further afield, such as from London, Bristol and Winchester, adding to the special nature of this event.

The Main tournament was won by Jo Adams and Bob Pimble who beat Liz Hegarty and Adrian Somerfield 6-3.  Jane Green and Alan Hunt beat Allison and Graham Stock 6-0 to win the Plate competition.  Despite the poor weather, both finals were watched by a hardy group of players who had stayed on.

The Tournament continues to evolve and everyone agreed that it was a very enjoyable event, with plenty of tennis for all.

Thanks go to Kate Henwood and Judith, Kate and Ben Potter for organising the refreshments and administration on the day.
