Our members went toe to toe in this fun Mixed Doubles Tournament. Thanks to Marian, Scott and Madi Shoemaker who organized the tennis and the BBQ and who got us off to a great start early morning.
It was competitive and hard fought. Sixteen players started out and those with the highest personal game scores progressed to the semi finals and onto the Final. Huge thanks to Friedl Brudermann for sponsoring this Cup, but sorry he was ill and couldn’t join on the day. Many thanks to Donna Brudermann who presented the trophy and a bottle of wine each to the winners.
Semi finalists were: Trevor Broatch & Marian Shoemaker, Christina Schellenberg & Eugene Fehr, Keith Barker & Cielo Lyle-Shortt and Dave Surette & Rainer Koehler.
Runners Up: Christina Schellenberg & Eugene Fehr.
Congratulations to the worthy winners! Dave Surette & Rainer Koehler
Sunday April 1st, 2023 - The Jura Cup
The 2023 Jura Cup was another great prize-competition event for members and we even had a Men’s Doubles Draw alongside which added to the fun. Main Draw saw several pairs competing and the Match Rules included a 7-point tiebreak at 5-5, and a 10-point tiebreaker in a third set.
Sadly, Ralph passed away just after the 2022 tournament but June still supports the Club and yet again sponsored this year’s Tournament prizes. Thank you so much June!
June was unable to present the Trophy, but Colin and Tamara Jacobsen did the honours.
