Smoke and rain puts a stop to ten­nis

Mansfield Courier - - Courier Sport - By RHONDA CAR­PEN­TER

CON­CERN for ten­nis play­ers’ health in smoky air pre­vented play in Mans­field on Tues­day night last week and on Wed­nes­day, af­ter the air had cleared, a thun­der­storm stopped play­ers from tak­ing to the court.

When the front came through at seven o’clock, wind and gusts forced play­ers to re­treat to the club­house.

Most were happy to catch up af­ter the break and watch the tor­ren­tial rain come down.

So­cial ten­nis was also can­celled on Wed­nes­day due to the smoke haze pro­duc­ing poor air qual­ity.
