Ladies’ President’s Tournament 2016

A move to a Spring fixture saw a record number of women take part in the Wells Ladies’ Presidents Tournament on Saturday 7th May.

Warm conditions with plenty of sunshine meant that a fantastic selection of cakes could be enjoyed between matches outside on flower-decked tables.

With pairs drawn from a hat, the format for the tournament saw 20 competitors play nine rounds of doubles each over two hours.   Each round consisted of four games with a sudden death point at deuce to keep everything moving along.

 Club President Tasha Smith said:

“I’d like to thank everyone who helped with scoring and refreshments, Jeannie and Clare for the smooth running of the event on Saturday and for a good turn-out of players.  We couldn’t have hoped for better weather to play and watch some great tennis.”
