THE Tennis section of the British Games Club held its annual Easter Fun Day tournament a few days before the start of the holiday.
Because Easter was quite late this year, numbers were well down on previous years, so many of our ‘swallow’ members having already returned home.
Nonetheless, the morning’s doubles were as keenly contested as ever, with the Chicks emerging winners at the end of the three-hour sessions by a margin of 56-45 games over the Bunnies.
The winning team members were Ian, Roberto, Lorna, Chris, Helen, George, Victoria, Max and Ken
There was an appropriate Last Supper feel to the traditional lunch that followed, with only 13 people at table to enjoy the meal provided by Chio, Jacobo and the clubhouse team.
As usual, the Easter event marked the end of the season’s tournament programme.
The section now goes into summer ‘maintenance mode’, with playing sessions taking place just once a week from Tuesday, May 2 until Tuesday, September 26.
The new 2017/2018 season officially gets under way on Tuesday, October 3, when Tuesday and Thursday twice-weekly sessions recommence.
