Vet­er­ans come to lawn courts

Wangaratta Chronicle - - Sport -

THE Wan­garatta Lawn Ten­nis Club will host the first of four vet­er­ans tour­na­ments this Sun­day with en­tries flood­ing in for the event.

Lo­cal vet­er­ans ten­nis leg­end Mick Keogh, who has been the reg­u­lar tour­na­ment man­ager, is tak­ing a break and will be ab­sent this tour­na­ment and is in­stead play­ing in the Masters Games in Alice Springs.

Keogh is con­fi­dent, how­ever, that other lawn ten­nis club mem­bers will step up to fill the roles usu­ally taken by his, and his other Wan­garatta team­mates who are also join­ing him in Alice Springs.

The Keogh name is still in­volved as Mick’s wife Val is tak­ing names for the Sun­day tour­na­ment.

To reg­is­ter for play ring Val on 5721 5613.

The round robin tour­na­ment will be ably sorted by Frank Har­ris and Phil Peck while other mem­bers will be help­ing with cater­ing and gen­er­ally mak­ing the vis­i­tors wel­come.

As usual the tour­na­ment is gen­er­ously spon­sored by Gap­sted Wines which sup­plies the tro­phies for court win­ners.

The sea­son open­ing event was held at Yar­ra­wonga a fort­night ago and Wan­garatta mem­ber Rus­sell O’Brien said this Sun­day would be an­other great day.

“Many play­ers from that tour­na­ment in­di­cated they were look­ing for­ward to com­ing over to Wan­garatta’s beau­ti­ful courts and fa­mous hos­pi­tal­ity,” he said.

“It will be a great day.”
