Horsham CC Closing Day celebrations

Saturday 18 May we had President's Day, closing day and presentation of our Singles and Doubles Champions.

A beautiful sunny day was enjoyed by 31 players,we played three games and enjoyed finger food for lunch and a yummy afternoon tea before the presentations.

I had the old grey matter working as I had eight teams each consisting of four players, on each court there were 8 players playing at one time (2 teams). Every game was a different draw and in the 3rd game some players used tennis balls, this was quite amusing especially when jumping.

Well, the weather was fine but there was an 8 car pile-up on the Western Ring Road and the Essendon team we held up for 45 minutes and only just scraped in to start on time. Nerve racking way to start a final.
