Sun shines on Car­ni­vale ten­nis

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

FOR­TU­NATELY the weather was much kinder for the Car­ni­vale ten­nis cup than last year when the event was a wash-out with tor­ren­tial rain.

Although en­trants were fewer, the tal­ent was top-class with vis­it­ing play­ers from Cairns clubs adding to the com­pe­ti­tion.

The Cup was a com­pe­ti­tion of “mixed” dou­bles.

The stan­dard of ten­nis was very high. Kathie Latham (a former long-time mem­ber of our Club) and James Sheri­dan from Cairns won all their sets on the day but were hotly con­tended by lo­cal mem­bers, par­tic­u­larly Kiani Berzin­ski/ Neal Brooks, Joan Berzin­ski/ Alex White and Angie John­son/Herold Prins.

The fi­nal de­cid­ing match be­tween Katie/James and Kiani/Neal was a show­stop­per with scores be­ing game-for-game right up to the end of the match to a tight tiebreaker with the ul­ti­mate win by Katie/James for the hon­our of the Cup.

Congratulations for very en­ter­tain­ing ten­nis.

The event was well or­gan­ised be­fore­hand and on the day as usual by June Hall and the friendly so­cial­iza­tion and good sports­man­ship made the day all the more fun.

What a great game ten­nis is! Why not come and play?
