Twi­light ten­nis has wet start

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - SPORT -

Rain lead­ing up to the first round of the De­niliquin Lawn Ten­nis Club’s Twi­light comp and dark clouds on the evening made for soft courts and the odd low bounce.

Creak­ing bod­ies and some new play­ers not hav­ing been graded into their best spot saw some miss matches.

Mitre 10 led by Kate Pa­ton and Jon Gat­acre had a strong win over Le­gal Ea­gles.

The score was 16 sets and 106 games to five sets and 68 games.

Lach­lan Hol­loway, a player step­ping out of ju­nior ranks into the se­niors, was able to win two of his three sets.

In the match be­tween Ags­pares and Pep­pin Plan­ners Ags­pares won 15 sets and 111 games to seven sets and 84 games.

Mark Ritchie claimed a two sets to one win over John Hen­der­son while his wife Naomi Ritchie won her three sets.

The sausage siz­zle stall sold out late in the evening and the sup­per was much en­joyed.

Round two will be played to­mor­row night, with the first round of the Satur­day af­ter­noon com­pe­ti­tion will be held this week­end.
