We usually just have our American Tournaments on Bank Holiday Mondays but as we have been deprived of them for so long, we decided to slip in an extra one on a Sunday. The weather forecast for 25th July was for thundery rain storms but in the end 21 hardy players managed to play a full afternoon of tennis before the rain arrived.
It wasn’t just the tennis that was enjoyable – after four rounds of play there was a well earned break for tea and cakes before we resumed for a further 2 rounds. The cakes were particularly appreciated as seen in these photographs – many thanks to the bakers, Debra Norton and Linda Robson.
Back on court the winning lady was Sam Williamson with an amazing average of 6.4 in each round of 8 games and runner up Clare Bambridge. The Mens winner was Mark Hill with Pete Smith and Paul Treacy joint runners up. A very enjoyable afternoon all round.
No photos of the action this time, just people enjoying their tea break. Everyone was too busy playing!
