24 pairs turned out and battled in rainy conditions at our annual ladies open on Wednesday 17 May 2017.
Thanks to all the ladies for their co-operation and patience as only 4 courts were playable and getting everyone on and off court quickly was a great challenge for us, and also for taking part in difficult weather conditions.
We welcomed pairs from Far Forest, David Lloyd Bromsgrove and Ludlow for the first time plus many familiar faces. Congratulations to our own pair Jo Merrison and Lesley Perrin who defeated reigning champions Kerry Hill and Tracey Jones in a tight final. A good win as Tracey & Kerry are the H & W Winter League 2016 players of the year with an unbeaten record of winning all 12 of their rubbers played. Well done Jo & Lesley!!!
It was Bewdley v David Lloyd in the battle for the plate prize with Nikki Guest & Melissa Newton coming out top defeating Sarah Adcock & Lucy Parris in the final. Well done ladies!!!
Despite the weather everyone enjoyed a great lunch and glass of wine and all had a good time with some very competitive tennis.
Thanks to Jackie for organising the food and all the helpers on the day. Too many to mention Also thanks to all the ladies who supplied the yummy!!! food. Thanks to County Sports of Hagley for the clothing and to Jenny for presenting the prizes.
