Round Nine of the Men’s No 2 Winter Night Tennis Competition was played last Tuesday and Steve Bowerman and Warren Schaefer were clear winners with the good score of 30 games.
Steve and Warren won all their sets in grand style, 5/3, 8/0, 7/1, 5/3, 5/3- very well played, Steve and Warren.
Next best players were Charles Harvey and Michael Doyle winning 26 games.
Michael was a fill-in for Hugh Moffitt.
Charles and Michael lost their first set 3/5 against the top pair but went on to win 6/2, 7/1, 4/4, 6/2.
Grant Fisher and Murray Mitton played consistent tennis to win 23 games for the night. Their sets were 3/5, 5/3, 8/0, 4/4, 3/5.
Rod Freudenstein and Ken Norrie won 18 games, while Anthony Wilson and Peter Sweeting who was filling-in for Stuart McKellar won 16 games.
Once again fill-ins were necessary to keep the Men’s Winter tennis moving along.
There are only three more rounds to be played to finalise the competition.
Round ten will be played next Tuesday night, July 31 weather permitting.
It was decided on Thursday afternoon, July 19 that social tennis will commence at 1 pm. Players felt that with the shorter days still with us, the earlier starting time will allow players to play more tennis before the sun sets beyond the hills.
There was a good roll up for social tennis last week and it was hoped that the rain would hold off to allow play yesterday.
Tennis players are welcome to come along to social tennis on Thursday afternoon.
It was pleasing to hear from our former tennis champion, Alan Heathcote this week that both he and Dianne have settled well into their retirement at Ballina.
Alan is playing regular social tennis on Monday nights with about a dozen men.
The Heathcote’s wished to be remembered to all their friends at Grenfell.
The next round of the Intertown Tennis Competition will be played on Sunday, July 29 when the combined team of Grenfell/Cowra will travel to Temora.
Temora is always a hard team to toss so hopefully those players selected to play will make themselves available – good luck.
Last Sunday, July 22 saw a very pleasing turnout at the Grenfell Junior Development Series Tournament.
Well done by Danny and his committee and other helpers.
