Taupo & Turangi Weekender - - News -

The Taupo¯ Ten­nis Club held its an­nual Se­nior Tour­na­ment re­cently with 80 en­tries from around the North Is­land and two from Aus­tralia mak­ing for a full field of com­peti­tors in all cat­e­gories.

The weather played ball and some high-qual­ity se­nior ten­nis was on dis­play. For the first time a Su­per Veter­ans sec­tion was in­cor­po­rated for the 65+ age group which proved pop­u­lar.

Lo­cal player Andy Mel­lor won both the Open Men’s sec­tion with part­ner Craig McFall from Auck­land, and the Open Mixed Dou­bles sec­tion with part­ner Karen Cranston from hakune. The Women’s Open sec­tion was won by Karen Cranston, and part­ner Ma­ri­etta Duffy-Burgess from Tau­ranga. The Men’s Su­per-Vets sec­tion was won by Sam Ha and Moon Hyun Doh from Auck­land, the women’s Su­per-Vets by Sylvia Wilmshurst and He­lena Goodin from Mt Man­ganui and New Ply­mouth re­spec­tively, and the Su­per-Vets Mixed Dou­bles by San­dra Glen­nie and Mal­colm Alexan­der from Welling­ton.

The club thanked ma­jor spon­sors Taupo¯ Fu­neral Ser­vices and Sotheby’s for their sup­port as well as Bot­tle’O, Waira¯kei Re­sort and Pak’nSave, Mir­ror Hair­dress­ing and David Biggs Out­door Im­prove­ments.

Busi­ness House and ju­nior ten­nis is about to get un­der­way for the 2018/2019 sea­son, and se­nior ten­nis is played all year around.
