Singles Tournament:  What a day!  25 men and 8 ladies competed throughout the day to see who could reach our club finals day on Saturday 23rd July.  The ladies started us off in the morning and had to compete against each other as well as the rain!  They braved the conditions and manged to get the semi finals played before lunch.  The men took a while longer, but by 6.30pm we had a semi final line up which will be played before finals day.

Results as follows:

Ladies Main Final:  Maria Perfect vs Ros McKeown.
Ladies Plate Final:  Julie Cooper vs Anthea Yeung.
