The Galloway News - - SPORT -

Matthew Pumphrey and Linda Pow­ell lifted the 2018 Car­lWhite Me­mo­rial Trophy to en­sure a new name was added to the hon­ours board at Dal­beat­tie Ten­nis Club.

The an­nual mixed dou­bles com­pe­ti­tion at­tracted 18 play­ers aged 50+. Over the morn­ing nine pairs played out in two sec­tions with the top two go­ing through to the semi-fi­nal stage. The tour­na­ment as usual was played in a re­laxed and friendly man­ner with plenty of laughs.

The fi­nal was a tight af­fair with Matthew and Linda just edg­ing out the much-fan­cied pair­ing of Phil Roberts and Chris Driscoll.

Af­ter­wards the play­ers re­laxed in the club­house to en­joy the ex­cel­lent buf­fet and ex­change some good na­tured ban­ter.Tro­phies were pre­sented by club pres­i­dent Kei­thThom.
