JONES AND SCHAEFFER TOP PAIR AT MEN’S NIGHT TENNIS

Ian (Dooley) Jones and Warren Schaefer were the top pair in round eight of the Men’s No 2 Winter Night Tennis Competition played on Tuesday.

This round was postponed last week owing to the very wet conditions from the lovely rain.

Ian and Warren played excellent tennis throughout the evening to win all their sets 6/2, 5/3, 5/3, 5/3 to give them a total of 26 games – a very good effort.

Just a couple of games behind, winning 24 were Steve Bowerman and Murray Mitton. Steve and Murray lost their first set 2/6 against Ian and Warren, but recaptured form to go back on the courts to win 6/2, 4/4, 5/3, 7/1- well done.

Rod Freudenstein and Anthony Wilson also played consistent tennis to win 21 games and their sets were 3/5, 4/4, 8/0, 3/5, 3/5.

Next best pair were Charles Harvey and John Walmsley winning 19 games.

Good to see Charles back on the court so soon after a nasty injury at an Intertown match.

Grant Fisher and his fill-in for Ken Norrie, Peter Sweeting won 16 games.

This was Peter’s first run with the men, however, he has been a regular player at social tennis on Thursday afternoons.

The other pair, Paul Tognetti and Leigh Taylor were fill-ins for Stuart McKellar and Hugh Moffitt. They won 14 games for the night.

Paul appears to have fully recovered from a problem shoulder injury which occurred some years ago so it’s also good to see him back with the group playing tennis.

Round nine of the Men’s Winter Tennis Competition will be played next Tuesday night, July 24 weather permitting.

JUNIOR TOURNAMENT
