Mens 3 Bye
Mens 4 Lost 3-5 away at Marrickville . Father and son Craig and Jarryd Stevens ( no relation to Cat) won 3 sets to lead the way. They played smart tennis and returned the serve on the full as the grass is so bad at Marrickville. Unfortunately that is not the case but should be allowed at Marrickville!
Mens 5 Lost 3-5 away at Cammeray. Another close result for this team. Joao/ Carl teamed up for the first time to win 2 sets. Scott/Ben 1 set.
Mens 6 Won 7-1 at home v Sydney University. Tennis brains defeated university brains easily. Chris/Denis 4 sets. Hugo/Guy played together for the first time to win 3 sets.
Mens 7 Won 4-4 on games v Wests at home. Roger/Stu 3 sets. David/ Hamish 1 set. This team is performing well each week.
Mens 8 Lost 1-7 away at Marrickville. It was a tough struggle on the grass. Ray Dalgairns/ Bob Amaral took one set.
Thursday Ladies Badge
