Attention Tennis & Squash Players!
There are a number of unpaid invoices for those who registered for Cousins Shield, Squash and Tennis Winter Interclub.
Invoices were sent on 31st May & 7th June. We would appreciate prompt payment.
The Herne Bay Open went ahead last weekend with a total of 80 players competing. The numbers were down from previous years partly due to clashing with other tournaments including the North Island Championships in Hastings.
The open division was an 8 draw which included 5 of our own A graders, Chris Lloyd, George Crosby, Matiu Te Kani-McQueen, Tyler Ranger and Ed Dromgool. Some great squash was played over the weekend. The main final on Sunday was a tough match between Chris Lloyd and Michael Sunderland. Chris got off to a slow start with Michael taking a 2-0 lead over Chris. Chris managed to fight back though and decrease mistakes made to take the 3rd and 4th game. With the game being 2 all Chris managed to come on firing in the 5th and took an early lead and managed to take the 5th and final game winning the tournament.
Thanks to all the helpers and the players over the weekend, the tournament could not have run without you. Special thanks to Sharon F, Ange Q, Conrad J, Kendel M, Jacqui M, Brendan T, Dave H, Mark R, Nat E, Wayne K, Cindy M, Matt T and Jason K.
Also a special thanks to our main sponsor for the tournament Bruce Doig aka Snappa (MOREAPPS) who is a long term supporter of the club and to Alistair Holt for providing the fruit for the weekend.
