Last weekend we had some fantastic handicap tennis played at the club. The Secretary’s Cup is great as it is a random draw for partners which means that members are likely to partner someone they might not have met before. In the group stages we had 7 sets that went down to the last game and all of the groups were very close.
On Sunday the play off group had all 5 pairs finishing with two wins and so went down to game difference with three going through the quarter-finals. Simon Brett and Tom Compton battled their way to the final to take on Stuart Allison and Oliver Harris. The final was extremely close and at 5 all it was looking like a 7 all forty all was on the cards but Stuart and Oliver managed to raise their game just enough to see them through with an 8/5 victory. Our thanks to Philip and Lyn Robinson and Andrew and Sally Falk for once again producing a great lunch on both Saturday and Sunday and congratulations to Oliver Harris and Stuart Allison on an excellent tournament.
