What a great day Senior Finals Day was this year. Despite the ominous weather forecast, we were able to get all the matches played and many of you were there to enjoy them.
The Bar had its most successful day ever, with takings topping £2,700, and the barbecue, cakes, strawberries and cream were enjoyed by everyone.
Thank you so much to the many people who helped make the day such a success, both in advance with the working party, baking, getting stock in, chivvying players to get their matches played and so much more, and on the day with umpiring, refreshments, the Bar, the barbecue, the raffle and the clearing-up.
The match results are below. Congratulations to those who had the wind in their sails. Commiserations to those who were blown away.
The trophies will be presented this coming Saturday 22 July at around 4pm. This will be preceded by the final of the Men’s Over-45 singles competition, starting at 2pm, and the Bar will be open all afternoon. We hope many of you will be there to watch the match and to congratulate everyone who participated in the summer tournament this year.
