The sun shone brightly on Saturday 29th June for the annual Strawberry Tournament. Twenty two members were drawn into pairs and battled each other and the heat, on what was probably the hottest day of the summer so far!
After two keenly fought semi-finals, Matt Mitchell and Helen Carbutt played Dave Holderness and Pete Cockroft in the final with Dave and Pete winning 6-2.
Roz Garthwaite, ably assisted by Hilary Carrington, took on scoring duties for the day, taking the reins temporarily from Geoff Robinson. We can both say, we now fully appreciate Geoff and his unflappability! Keeping the scoring and the games flowing is no easy task.
Thanks to all members who brought cakes and helped in the kitchen, hulling hundreds of strawberries and keeping the Pimms jug full!
Finally, the club would like to thank our sponsor Alan Ingle from The Pear Tree who kindly provided food for the bbq and of course presented the medals and cup to the finalists.
