There's something in the water for our tennis players at the moment with recent news of member Mike Silva's success at the NZ Masters Games held in Dunedin last month. The Masters games is huge with over 3,500 people competing in over 60 different sports.
Mike managed to win two Gold medals - one in the Men's 50's Singles and the other in the Men's 50's Doubles. Just to show off he added a Bronze medal in the mixed doubles 50's in the Badminton. Fantastic effort Mike!
