The men played Round 8 of their Winter Tennis Competition on Tuesday night in much warmer conditions and the winning pair was the combination of Matthew Clarke and Leigh Taylor who won a total of 27 games. Matthew was a fill-in for Charles Harvey. Matthew and Leigh combined well together to level their first set 4 all, then went into top gear to win 6/2, 6/2, 6/2, 5/3. A good effort for the two players.
Graham Watt, filling in for Grant Fisher paired with Mark Liebich to win a total of 22 games. They had mixed results in their sets which were 7/1, 3/5, 4/4, 5/3, 3/5. Just a game behind, winning 21 were Danny Joyce and John Walmsley. They levelled their first set 4 all with the top pair, then won 6/2, another 4 all, lost 3/5, and battled away in their last set to level at 4/4. Stuart McKellar and Rod Freudenstein also won 21 games after having mixed results. Their sets were 6/2, 5/3, 4/4, 2/6, 4/4.
Hugh Moffitt and Pat Hazell battled away to record a total of 15 games. Hugh and Pat levelled the third set 4/4, won the fourth 5/3 and lost the other three sets 1/7, 2/6, 3/5.
Grahame Edwards and Arnold Brown did not have the best of luck in their tennis and won a total of 14 games after winning their last set 5/3. Another enjoyable night’s tennis for the men who will now play Round 9 next Tuesday, August 1 (The Horses’ Birthday).
