Social doubles at Burnham

Avenue Tennis Club in Burnham held their first Sunday social tournament of the year.

THE first Sunday social tournament of the year at the Avenue Tennis Club, Burnham, saw 21 players turn up to compete.

The teams played seven service game matches trying to achieve as many game wins as possible. After three matches of seven, the teams were paired up in order of the amount of games won.

This meant there was a total of 14 points to win in the last two matches and this gave everyone a good chance of winning.

The eventual winners were Jo Brown and Avenue tennis coach, Craig Phillips who won the tournament with 26 points, closely followed in second place by Dave (Scooby) Vennall and Charlie Lee (Wellington), with joint third place taken by ladies’ captain, Lynn O’Dell and Carl Puzey (Wellington) and club coach, Barry Ramsden and Geoff Lee (Wellington).
