Club Championships 2016
First mooted at the AGM a

The first final to be
played was the Ladies Doubles – Sian Westbury and Caroline Tindale
came out as winners over Janet Dunkin and June Ward 4 -6 , 6 -2 ,
7-5. It was a fairly even, hard fought match with both sides taking the
lead at times, the match swaying first one way then the other –
anybody’s match until those last two games. Well done Sian & Caroline –
a worthy final. Some pictures are here.
Mens Doubles Champions: David Edwards and Geoff Ward beat Andy
Hawken and Charles Watts in a marathon three set match 5-7, 6-4,
7-5. It was a great final which, like the ladies match, could have gone
either way with a very close third set – well done to the four
Mixed doubles Champions: David Edwards and June Ward took the
lead early on in their match against Charles Watts and Cheryl Lydon
and never let go of it winning in straight sets, 6-1, 6-0. Despite the
uneven score line, there were many close games, long deuce games and
some great rallies but some persistent net play by the winners clinched
the match. Well done all.
The Club championships 2017 are already underway with improvements based
on this year’s experience.
