Christmas Tennis Evening December 2018

On Thursday 13th December,  17 players enjoyed an evening of festive tennis, wearing Christmas hats and sparkly jumpers, and braving a very cold night.  Barbara Awbery organised us excellently.  We played a handicap system, which involved quite a lot of concentration from everyone to get it right, but which worked very well as could be seen by the close scores!  There were 2 boxes, and we played 4 matches and 7 games each.

Courts 1, 2 & 3 in use

Well done to the winners: Caryl Corridan and Katherine Neill in Box 1;  and Pui Pride and Katie of Box 2.

Many thanks to Barbara Awbery for bringing along mulled wine and prizes, and making the evening such fun; and to Di Mathisen for baking delicious mince pies.  Here are a few snaps:
