Great entry for Over 50s Tournament

The weather stayed kind for our Over 50s tournament today. A good entry saw all 5 courts being used and unusually the male entry of 13 was almost double that of the ladies entry of 7 (due to illness and injury 2 ladies had to withdraw on the day). After some excellent play the top scoring man, David Reynolds was partnered with the second placed lady, Suzie Sinclair (who drew on points with Jenny Turner but won her finals place on the toss of a coin!).

Thanks go to Lis Jenkin and Brenda Charlton who ran the...
