WE HAD a day of laughter and mild cursing as we fought the distraction of gusty winds blowing hats of heads, hair into eyes and balls off direction.
But we usually enjoy our day on the court and this was no exception.
Liz Ellway played brilliantly, despite the conditions, to score a total of seven hoops in the first game and eight in the second.
She and Elaine Brown had a 13–5 win against Marian Castles and Pauline Inglis in the first game and in the second she combined with Dianne Wren to defeat Kathy Hopgood and Pauline Inglis 13–7.
The other group in the first game saw Dianne Wren and Kathy Hopgood narrowly defeat Justin Liddy and Shirley Page narrowly 9–8 and in the second game Shirley Page and Elaine Brown also had a very close win 10–9 against Justin Liddy and Marian Castles.
