American Tournament 7th May – Results

Congratulations to everyone who took part in The American Tournament at Margate Lawn Tennis Club.  The event had been dedicated to Alf Borg our recently deceased Chairman.  Gavid Vickers, Head Coach, commented “I have not seen so many people attend and American Tournament for many years”.  Testimony to the fact that Alf was immensely popular at the club and could ‘draw a crowd’ .  There were around 40 participants and many others visited to sit in the sun and watch the tennis, drink tea and chat.  Almost everyone brought something to put towards the buffet lunch.  A big thank you to Yvonne Forbes and others who helped to get it all out!

The weather was perfect with the thermometer easily reaching 26c and some of the tennis was just as hot!  First prize in the junior competition went to Oliver Page, the Adult Womens winner was Wendy Baker and Martin Hicks, a new member won the Top Adult Male section.

Pancreatic research was also a winner, as all the entrance fees and several donations were combined to be donated to a relevant medical organisation. (to be announced).
