Club Mixed Doubles Tournament - October 16th 2016
Pewsey Tennis Club Mixed Open Tournament, Sunday 22nd May in aid of National Autistic Society On a lovely warm May morning 12 pairs contested this annual tournament and riased a fantastic £235 for the NAS after school clubs in Wiltshire.
Two groups of six pairs played full set with game point on deuce and Etan Gunton (last year’s winner) and Alexa Rutter won Group 1 and Malcolm Drinnan and Clare Bamforth won Group 2. The final whilst keenly contested was fairly one sided with Ethan and Alexa emerging victorious by 6-1.
Lis Donaldson once again organised the tournament for which all entrants were grateful and warmly applauded. Chairman, Colin Gratton, creator of the tournament was amazed at the funds raised, spoke of his appreciation and then presented the prizes and cup. Hopefully Pewsey can build on having a home pair in the final and actually with the tournament next year.
