AUSTRALIAN MASTERS WEEKEND INCLUDING THE ARTA VETERANS
The weekend of 24/25 October saw the Club host the Australian Masters. The events consist of singles and doubles for Over 50s, 55s, 60s, 65s, 70s and 75s. These events are reasonably recent additions to the calendar to align with the International biennial competitions but significantly, include the long-standing ARTA Veterans (Over 55s).
While the weekend was well attended overall, unfortunately there were insufficient entries to hold the two 50s events and the 75s doubles.
All the events were played under championship conditions (best of three six-game sets) were hard fought and played to a high standard.
On Saturday night, Jonathan Hamer and Geof Fethers provided a magnificent four-course dinner for the players and partners which was well attended and thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Congratulations to the winners:
