Ladies Doubles Tournament

On Thursday June 18th 42 Ladies played in a doubles tennis tournament at Purley.

We were very lucky with the weather, it was a beautiful day, the grass were in and everyone played on it at least 3 times  

The players played in 4 Round Robin Groups in the morning, with the top 8 pairs playing a knockout tournament in the afternoon, and the remaining 13 pairs played in a plate competition.

 The winners of the main draw were:

Louise Ryan and Carolyn Fisher they  had an excellent final against Paula Munro and Debbie Heinemann from Virgin Active, finally winning 7-5.

 The winners of the plate competition were Linda Morris and Diana Coppin from Banstead Downs, who also had a great close match but came through in the tie-break to beat our own Pat Lovell and Wendy Johnson from Virgin.

 £176 was made for the tennis section.
