Swindon Mens and Ladies April 2016

Mary and Rod Elliott were the organisers, thanks also to Bob Gasston for the pictures of the winners. As usual a full report with scores will appear in the next magazine, but Rod has summarised the day as "The very popular Swindon Mens and Ladies tournament was held on the 7th April at the Delta Centre. With a strong field of 8 pairs in both tournaments, the day was a great success and produced a lot of very good tennis. There were some surprises and a few upsets (not least poor Max injuring himself in his first set - but the show went on with a local guest). From the enthusiasm shown on the day perhaps there is an appetite for more of this format? Many players then stayed on afterwards to socialise and enjoy an excellent meal at the Centre."
