No Juniors, no formal presentation of trophies, no rain (so that was a good thing), no refreshments ( definitely not a good thing) and limited number of spectators. That didn’t stop the club having a weekend full of excellent tennis.
Thanks to the committee who had thought through all the issues about putting on the finals in the present circumstances and to the finalists who had to play without the usual buzz around the club.Thanks as always to Zana who put in so much time putting the draws together and running the weekend.
Here is one of my favourite photos from the weekend. You might think they had just won, but in fact they were the runners-up in the Mixed Doubles final; typical of the good spirit in which the matches were played.
(I live in hope that I will be able to upload more photos soon, but despite my best efforts that is proving tricky to get right)
