Quarterly Medal #2  Sat 27 May
The second quarterly medal of the year is coming up on 27 May. Get in early to book your spot. We will have morning and afternoon sessions in the usual format.

The annual ANZAC Day trophy was well attended yesterday by an enthusiastic group of 12 players including new members Beth Redman and Leo Murphy.  There were several close matches throughout the day but Jo See Tan proved once again what a formidable player she is, winning back-to-back finals in the singles and doubles. Roland Scollay and Jo See teamed perfectly to win the doubles against Fiona Hewson and  Ann Maree Lester 6-2. Jo See defeated Ann-Maree in the singles, again  6/2. Thanks to Fiona Hewson for providing the ANZAC Day lunch.
