Magdala Tennis Club

21 Tournament - Thursday 13 April 2017

The first Thursday tournament of the new Magdala season took place on Thursday 13 April.  Despite the proximity to the holiday, there was a good turn-out..  As organizer, I could rejoice in the round number of just 16 players, which meant that everyone could compete in every round and no nasty calculations were required at the end.  But the gender imbalance (just 6 ladies and 10 men) brought its own challenge in devising the rotation of players and the swapping of men from the men's court to the mixed courts in a sensible way.  

Competition was frenetic and fierce - but the evening brought a clear winner in Mark Stone, who with his partners had triumphed as the 21-er in four out of the 5 rounds.  Alison Davidson came next, closely followed by Lee Ditchburn and Matthew Proudlove, who tied for 3rd place. And afterwards, the company enjoyed a drink and a chat - and some of Mark's winner's chocolates!
