Club Championships Week 6

Andrew Riminton is the Men’s Open Singles Club Champion again. Congrats Andrew.

He defeated Bosko Novakovic last Saturday 6-2 6-2 in front of a big crowd including Andrew’s number 1 fan : George Paul. The score line did not show the closeness of the match.

The Open Mens Doubles had  to be delayed to another day as Cameron Green finished his premier league match very late.

Lisa Green added to her Ladies Open Singles title. Lisa and Janelle Lofthus won the Open Ladies Doubles defeating Nicola Bray and Julia Gunn 6-1 6-4.

The Open Mixed Doubles title went to to Stephen Nettleton and Kirsten Bruce in a tense, see sawing 3 setter against Nicola Bray and Fernando Alves, 6/7 7/5 6/3. Kirsten and Stephen won the Combined 100 mixed  doubles earlier this year.

The A-Mixed Doubles Final was the first match of the day. Michelle Stevens and Shane Bruce defeated Sharna King and Pablo Siebeneichler 6-3 6-4.

Congratulations to all the winners, and to everyone who played in the events to make the championships possible. Thank you.

Following the matches, members  enjoyed 12 kilos of meat in a Brazilian Barbecue along with a few drinks!

Please be aware that if you wish to play on a club court between 4pm to 7pm on a Tuesday you need to book a court with the Manly Tennis Centre in advance; one hour maximum.
