No slowing the seniors at Paramount Tennis Club
AROUND 80 players from Dubbo and across the state converged on the Paramount courts last weekend for the club’s highly popular Over-35s Senior’s Tournament.
The two days of keen competition showcased some highly talented players, while the more social players spent plenty of time on court as well in a competition format that caters for all abilities.
Players enjoyed the opportunity to socialise between games and there were a number of gatherings around Dubbo on Saturday night.

President, Charlie Whiteley, was pleased the event drew such a strong turnout and was enjoyed by all players.
“We got a lot of great feedback from all the players about how much they enjoy this weekend and how well the tournament runs,” Mr Whiteley said.
“We (the committee) thoroughly enjoy the Over35s tournament and it is great seeing all the courts at our Wingewarra St complex in action. There was a real buzz action in the clubhouse in between matches, which reflected the genuine friendliness of those who participated,” he added.
“Weekends such as this are pretty important as the money we raise helps us maintain our high standard of facilities and upgrade our club as required.”
Both days featured singles, mixed doubles, doubles, combined aged doubles and combined aged mixed doubles.
The Paramount Tennis Club is currently in the early stages on its spring competitions with A, B and C grades all concluding in the middle of December.
