THERE was an early start for some, a 9am kick off in fact, for the British Games Club tennis section’s annual Christmas fun day, although one or two did forget to set their alarms and as a consequence had to forfeit their first game.
On another beautiful sunny December day great fun was had as the Reindeer took on the Elves, as is traditional at this time of year.
There was a good turnout of tennis section members, most of whom made the effort turn up in some sort of Christmas attire.
On this occasion the Reindeer team reigned supreme, though it was a close run thing with the final score tallied at 81 to 75.
Then the all-important lunch awaited – a super menu comprising cream of crayfish soup, prawn and avacado cocktail, roast fillet of beer with all the trimmings, followed by mince pie and a glass of port.
Santa paid his annual visit, taking time out from his busy schedule to fly down to Puerto de la Cruz. He really did look quite fetching in his new stockings!
All in all it was great day and all for the princely sum of €25 – where else would you get such good value for money.
