Joan M Hayne Women’s Handicap Doubles - Sun. 21 Nov

A very enjoyable day’s tennis was had on Sunday 21st Nov with 12 women playing in the Joan M Hayne Women’s Handicap Doubles. The sets were shared around with every pair winning at least one across the day. The final was a tight affair between the fast improving Helen Schultz and Annie Dempster and the perennial finalists Julia McCahey and Georgie Lewis. The latter pair managed to atone for their loss in the final the week prior by winning this one 6/4.

Monday, 29th Nov

A special thank you to David Hayne, whose mother the tournament is named after (see historic clip below), for providing the two bottles of champagne that went to the winners. A big thank you to Jo See Tan for organising the delicious lunch which followed the tennis and was enjoyed by all. The victors’ champagne was passed around and the afternoon passed by in a flash as new acquaintances were made and quickly became old friends.

Finally many thanks to Kate for running the day so smoothly and marking the final.
