Upcoming Tournaments
Gerald Patterson Cup – Saturday 19th March
Enjoy a spot or lawn tennis after your game of real tennis? The G Patterson cup is for you, come and join the frivolity of the annual RMTC vs RSYLTC competition with real tennis in the morning and lawn tennis in the afternoon including lunch and dinner. The RMTC team is looking for 3 players to play, please contact the Geof Fethers directly at ghf@reedylagoon.com.au or email or call the pro shop to get involved. Players who can only play in the morning are also welcome.

U35 Young Members Tournament – Saturday 2nd April
The first of the tri-annual young members tournaments is coming up, clear the date in your diary and put your name down on the board in the club to get involved. Lunch included in the tournament and dinner and drinks in the evening pending interest.

RMTC vs MCCRTS (at Romsey) – Sunday 17th April
Your club needs you! RMTC is looking for a team of 10 players to play against the MCCRTS. The match is being held at Romsey which is due to be closed as a tennis court in favour of becoming a gallery and this is likely the last chance to experience the wonders of tennis at Romsey.

Tournament Reports
RMTC wins Percy Finch 2016 in Hobart
The Percy Finch is a tournament between Melbourne and Hobart. The tournament is the best of 9 matches: 6 singles and 3 doubles played off scratch in handicap order.
The Percy Finch teams were:
RMTC HRTC
Dan Williams Kieran Booth
Michael Williams Graeme Blundstone
Paul Rosedale Patrick Dunn
Hugo Pincent Graeme Bradfield
Mark Hartnell Jeremy Rackham
Jonathan Hamer John Herbert

After 5 singles matches and 3 doubles the score was 4 matches all on Sunday night.

Hobart (against the odds, or was it with the benefit of home court, or hospitality?) had had 2 near misses:
Mark Hartnell defeated Jeremy Rackham 3/6 6/4 6/0
Jonathan Hamer defeated John Herbert 5/6 6/4 6/3
and 2 exceptional wins:
Graeme Blundstone defeated Michael Williams 6/5 1/6 6/5
Graeme Bradfield defeated Hugo Pincent 6/4 2/6 6/2.

All rested on Paul Rosedale who met the challenge on Monday morning by defeating Patrick Dunn 6/3 6/1
and so the Percy Finch 2016 was RMTC’s.

In recent years the Clubs have also played a second contest (the “PF2”). This year RMTC sent a team of 7 to take on Hobart:
RMTC PF2 HRTC PF2
Nick Carr Nick Rooke
Mike McAuley Justin Legg
Henry Turnbull Graeme Holloway
Graeme Richardson Ron Booth
Jackson Brand Will Joscelyne
Ed Hamer John Herbert
Nick Brand

There were some close encounters:
Ron Booth defeated Jackson Brand 9/8
Graeme Holloway defeated Ed Hamer 9/7
but overall Hobart PF2 dispatched Melbourne PF2 7 matches to 1 ( Nick Carr defeated Nick Rook 9/6).
At the same time the Australian Amateur Doubles (an ARTA event) was played in Hobart (including a “B”division). Several top amateur players were missing (Michael Happell, Bret Richardson, Julian Snow, Chris Sievers and Hilton Booth) but there was excellent quality in the field. The final was a very intense and closely fought battle between Kieran Booth/Graeme Blundstone and Dan Williams/Michael Williams with the Williams brothers emerging as winners 4/6 0/6 6/2 6/1 6/4!
In the final of “B” division, the local pair of Jeremy Rackham/Justin Legg defeated Hugo Pincent/Mark Hartnell 6/4 1/6 6/3.
On Saturday night there was a fine dinner at the Club with speeches, camaraderie, rudeness and mockery (but no speech from Graeme Bradfield – a first!)
The Melbourne Club recorded its appreciation of Barry Toates’ contribution to the Percy Finch in particular and to real tennis in general over many years ( 52+) and in anticipation of his retirement in June this year, presented him with a lawnmower ( for Karen and his retirement block on the East coast of Tassie) – it has excellent cut!
Thanks to all who participated in what is always a great weekend of tennis.
Jonathan Hamer
Chairman of Tennis

See you on court

Tournament Reports
Old Scholars Handicap Doubles – Sunday 6th March
Creativity was the order of the day – more so in the ability to find scholastic connections with a partner than in the resulting play. For example, first on court and oldest scholar James Guest hailed from one of the old bluestone colleges, while partner Ken Penaluna claimed the bluestone college of Pentridge as his institutional connection (Ken says he worked there; others thought it may have been in the kitchens or breaking rocks in the yard). Down 1-3 they used their “Get out of Jail Free” card to connive a 6-5 win over UniTas alumni Jackson Brand & Dick Friend. The latter continued to be poor losers with further losses 6-5, 6-5 and 6-3 after leading early in each of those games. Dublin Uni alumni records apparently list a past veterinary pathology student Michael MacAleavey, but he seemed not to make head or tail of his partner Robert Falconer, for their campaign began with a 1-6 loss.

Monash Uni was prolific in contributing teams – Jo See Tan & Julia McCahey; Lancelot Stewart & Moritz von Sanden; and Vince Scopelitti & Greg Moran – but its size meant none of these players ever met the others at the University! Perhaps unlikely in Greg’s case, as his only Monash connection was playing hockey with Monash Grads! Greg Moran arrived complaining his handicap was wrong. Be assured, Greg, that it will change but not as you suggested it should change – your four Round Robin wins, followed by a 6-0 Semi-Final win with a last shot dedans – these will ensure your handicap comes right in, not out!

The tennis was being enjoyed by all, but an adjournment was made for lunch with Dick Friend and assistants Jackson Brand and Julia McCahey providing smoked quail and salad, bread and cheeses, and followed by an Eton Mess. During lunch, players briefly outlined the academic institution which united them. One particularly inventive combination was Ian Seddon (proclaimed fish lover) who explained his alumnus Kathryn Ardnt similarly liked fish, and they thus represented the “School of Fish”! A far longer explanation was provided in a post-prandial peroration by Allan Willingham, explaining that part of his court architecture enquiries was done at University of Bath, where partner Steve Wood studied.

Saskia Bollerman sacrificed her day off from RMTC and, before playing in the Junior Pennant that evening, played six long matches as a student of tennis at Radley. The matches were long on account of her games being Owe 30/Rec 30 sometimes with chase restriction, banned tambours & one serve – a handicap occasioned by her choice of that other Radley student Julian Snow. Despite dishing devastating defeats on their road to the finals, opponents delighted in the opportunity to have a crack at avoiding the Snow job – indeed one rest saw five consecutive volleys by Saskia from the net, each while Julian winced and trembled with anxiety in the back court, all shots variously scrambled back by Vince and Greg, until a sixth return strayed Julian’s way only to be promptly and contemptuously dispatched to the winning gallery. So much entertaining tennis, but not enough to reach the grand final.

Amongst the many new faces playing so well were Canberra University alumni Matthew Downey & Sam Bowman. Recently recruited from squash, they flicked and boasted their way right through the morning undefeated, despatched other semi-finalists Ian & Kathryn unceremoniously, and proceeded to the final against Greg Moran & Vince Scopelitti. Having beaten them 6-1 in their earlier encounter, they were clearly on a roll, and ground out a not-so-easy but convincing win. Expect to see these rising stars on the boards, as well as the names engraved on the silver salver Old Scholars Trophy.

Semi-Finals:
V Scopelliti/G Moran df. J Snow/S Bollerman 6/2
M Downey/S Bowman df. K Arndt/I Seddon 6/0

Final:
M Downey/S Bowman df. V Scopelliti/G Moran

See you on court

January Carnival of Tennis

Wow, what a fun January we enjoyed at the Club this year. It started with a bang. Large galleries before and during the Boomerang enjoyed some excellent tennis in the Australian Open. A thrilling Chris Chapman v Rob Fahey 5 setter in the semi’s was a highlight, with Rob stepping up when it counted and winning out in the end. Ben Taylor-Mathews had a strong tournament as did Penny Lumley as they progressed through to their respective finals. However it ended up being a happy Fahey household with Rob and Claire both being crowned singles champions – again!

Some terrific tennis was played in the men’s doubles with the ball flying around at pace. Australia was well represented on court with Ben being the odd one out from the UK. Our own amateur champion Kieran pairing with Ben couldn’t it on the day with the in form pair of Rob & Chappy. Chappy is a hitting partner for Rob as he prepares for the upcoming World Championship in May, so they play very well together. The results:

Australian Men’s Open Singles: Rob Fahey d. Ben Taylor-Mathews 6/4 6/2 6/1
Australian Women’s Open Singles: Claire Fahey d. Penny Lumley 6/0 6/0
Australian Men’s Open Singles: Rob Fahey / Chris Chapman d. Ben Taylor-Mathews / Kieran Booth 6/1 6/1 6/3
Australian Women’s Open Singles: Claire Fahey / Saskia Bollerman d. Penny Lumley / Tara Lumley 6/2 6/3

We have received great feedback from professionals and members that the scheduling of the finals of the Australian Open during the opening week of the Boomerang Cup is a great move. The professionals love playing in front of large galleries and the members and visitors are able to watch some high standard ‘pro-standard’ tennis in amongst the Boomerang handicap tennis.

This year we enjoyed hosting teams from France and the Netherlands for the first time, as well as a team from the USA. It was truly an international event and they brought with them a heightened sense of enthusiasm, with both the Dutch and French teams having successful campaigns with a clash in the quarter finals. The English came in force with the Brigands waving the flag for their band of supporters in the final. All clubs from Australia were represented demonstrating that real tennis is alive and well here.

A special thanks goes out to the organising committee and helpers. Owen Guest did a brilliant job as tournament director, particularly coordinating the draw and keeping everyone informed with daily email updates – and he received excellent assistance from Richard Pagone and the pro-team entering results and preparing match sheets. Julie Baker arranged some fabulous functions catering for over 220 people during the Opening Cocktail Party at RMTC during the men’s singles final, a mid-tournament BBQ at the Richmond Rowing Club on the Yarra next to Princes Bridge was a huge hit, as was the final dinner in the MCC Members Dining Room at the MCG. The new RMTC sports bag and belt were a big hit, so we thank Andrew Buckle for his efforts in sourcing these items and assisting with the general organisation of the event. Others also did their bit to assist such as Lesley O’Byrne (program & poster), Michelle O’Rorke & Fiona Hewson (entry forms, website & communications), Jon Hamer & Gary Lee (Billets), Lizzie Brown (Bar – record sales!), Clive Smith from FuzzyTV video streaming) and his helpers Jocee Tan, Paul Bollerman and Jack O’Rorke.

A special thanks goes out to Frank and his fabulous pro team of Jonners, Kate, Tabs, John, Saskia and helpers from afar such as Colin Lumley, Graham Hyland, CJ White. They marked over 300 matches and deserved a well earned break at the end!

Congratulations to RMTC Complainers for their 3/1 win in the final of the Boomerang and to all of the finalists and participants. It was a fantastic two weeks of tennis and it was a pleasure to be part of our Club during this great event.
