Winscombe Ladies tried out the newly resurfaced courts for the first time in their annual autumn doubles tennis tournament on 23 October.
Despite the event being held a little later than usual this year the weather smiled on us again and after a chilly start the sun shone brightly as the tournament progressed. Worthy winners were Suzie Stockwell and relative newcomer, Sarah Bostock, who was cheered on by her admiring 16 month old daughter!
Runners up were Sally Thompson and her partner Lynda Nalder.
As usual the highlight of the day was the ‘bring and share’ lunch afterwards – more heavily weighted in favour of desert – which Winscombe ladies are so good at! It was also an opportunity to meet the club’s new coach, Greg Spink, who came to discuss his plans for the upcoming coaching programme.
Well done to everyone for the high standard of tennis and friendly spirit in which the matches were played. Suzie and Sarah will now share the winner’s cup until next year when we do battle once again!
