On Sunday 23rd May the ever popular World Cup event took place attracting a good range of Improvers and Full Members. The day was breezy but thankfully stayed dry until after play had ended.
Four sets were played with pairs changing after each, so giving a good mix of tennis and some very competitive play.
The Rest of the World team took an early lead and were looking most likely to come out on top until the final round of matches. It was left to the very last match of the afternoon to decide the outcome with Sue and Andrea needing 4 games to secure victory for England. They won their set to put their team 3 points clear.
The final scores were:
Europe 40; Celtic 46; Rest of the World 54 and England 57.
Refreshments were laid on during the afternoon and tea and cakes were enjoyed during the presentation.
The England team, captained by Sue, received the impressive trophy plus a chocolate racquet and goody bag!
Thanks to organisers Kevin & Keith, with a special mention to cake-maker Pauline.
