Moruya Seniors Tennis a Smash!

The Moruya Country Market Seniors Tennis Tournament, held last Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Moruya and Broulee Tennis clubs, saw players come from Sydney, the A.C.T. and all along the south coast. 105 players competed in the 3-day round-robin tournament for players aged over 35 years.

For the first 2 days, players had to battle not only their opponents but bitterly cold, gale-force winds. All players are to be congratulated on their patience, ingenuity and perseverance.

In Mens Singles, John Organ (Vincentia) and Anthony Connell(ACT) were winners, while Phil Higgs overcame long-time doubles partner Pat Moloney (ACT). Karen Burns (Ulladulla) was the womens singles winner over Batemans Bay’s Donna Davis.

Mens Doubles saw David Horsfall and Grant Woodbridge (Jerrabombera) dominate their groups on both Saturday and Sunday without losing a set. Other winners included Higgs and Moloney as well as Moruya locals Wayne Riches and Noel Brooks.

In Womens Doubles, local winners included Lorna Jackson & Libby Ives, Nicole Bartlett & Jill Riches, Elaine Anderson & Michele Blackburne.

In Mixed Doubles, winners included Kathie Thackray (Dalmeny) & Barry Austin (Bermagui), Merran Pell (Narooma) & Phil Bryant (Sussex Inlet), Jill & Wayne Riches (Moruya), Enid Besant-Ryan & Pat Moloney, Donna Davis & Anthony Connell.

The Brian Smith Perpetual Shield for the oldest singles winner was presented to Phil Higgs by Norah Smith.

The John Allard Perpetual Shield for the oldest womens doubles winners, Heather McKay and Leonie Ainsworth (ACT), was presented by Libby Ives.

Organisers wish to thank the sponsors, all the players for supporting the tournament, and, all the volunteers at Moruya and Broulee tennis clubs who worked so hard to make this annual event such a success.
