As this is the last re­port for the year, the Start­ford Avon club thanks all play­ers, spon­sors and the Strat­ford Press for their sup­port.

■ Strat­ford Golf Club: Bril­liant weather saw some bril­liant scores at the Men’s Christ­mas Ham­per on Satur­day. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all the win­ners.

Next week play­ers have a last chance to pick up some Christ­mas prizes, so come along and join in the fun.

Next Satur­day the men’s prize­giv­ing will be held at

5.30pm, so maybe all play­ers can stay a lit­tle longer to cel­e­brate with our win­ners over the year.

■ Mid­hirst Ten­nis Club: Although the weather was a bit dodgy, Mid­hirst man­aged to play all their games. Mid­hirst One trav­elled to Manaia and even­tu­ally won 4-2. The first two games went Mana­ias’ way, and Mid­hirst play­ers worked hard to win the next four. Con­di­tions were a lit­tle windy but oth­er­wise fine. The Mid­hirst Two team were away to Okato and also came away with a 4-2 win. Kris­ten Jan­nings won all her games. The Mid­hirst Three team had their bye.

On Thurs­days at 3.30pm pri­mary school chil­dren are be­ing coached by Ghis­laine Brien at the club.

Night ten­nis is go­ing well with some great bat­tles. The sec­ond round starts in Fe­bru­ary.
