INAUGURAL JIM WITHEFORD MEMORIAL CHALLENGE

Played on Sunday 22nd September 2019, we had sixteen mixed doubles pairs from clubs around the North competing in a round robin format to honour our former president of 27 years. Our four pool winners all made it to the semi finals undefeated, with Christine Egan and Greg Porter defeating Max Byrne and his daughter Cathy Harvey 6/4. Roxie Holden and Owen Geale defeated Karen Maclaren and Rod Meldrum 6/2 in the other semi. Roxie and Owen went on to win the final against Chris and Greg 6/4, becoming the first name on our generously, anonymously donated Shield, which will hang in the clubhouse permanently as a reminder of Jim’s contribution to the club. The winners also took home some gift vouchers from our fantastic supporters at WISEGUISE PIZZA.

We hope to expand the competition to our maximum size of 20 next year now that everybody has had a taste of what was a great, cheap day of competitive tennis. Thanks to our helper on the bbq, Mr.Walker, and thanks to the pairs from Legana, Deloraine, AIC, Trevallyn and Longford who made the effort to come along.

Club championships finals this year were played on Friday evening 30th November and Saturday 1st December.

A fantastic turnout of club members enjoyed a barbeque cooked by Owen and appreciated the sunny, albeit windy weather. Below are the results, with our winners and runners-up receiving fantastic prizes which were donated by some fantastic businesses who support us each year. We are extremely grateful for their continuing support, and encourage everybody to in turn support these businesses to say thank you.
