WHAT a fantastic afternoon at Toti Tennis Club last Saturday. The club were privileged to have with them Craig Chamier, chairman of Amanzimtoti Sports Centre and Gary Brown, president of eThekweni Tennis Association.

Chamier and Brown cut the ribbons and officially opened our refurbished courts. Thanks goes to both of them. Chamier also participated in the tournament. Despite the excessive heat, 26 players took to the courts to vie for our Sandra Cup Trophy.

Our section winners were Richard and Vanessa and Gabriel and Hans who then played under lights for the coveted trophy. Congratulations to Richard and Vanessa who proved too good to beat.

Chamier presented the prizes, and Hans presented the trophy.

A huge thank you to our chairman Alan and his committee for their hard work ensuring everything ran smoothly. Special thanks to Laurence who kept the players on their toes for each round. Our boerie rolls, and the bring-and-braai is always very popular. Thank you goes to all who provided snacks, salads and dessert .

Social tennis continues on club days until we prepare for the 2017 league fixtures due to begin in mid April for the midweek ladies and mid-May for mixed doubles, which are played on Saturday afternoons.

Our development clinic for primary school children has commenced for the first school term. If your child shows an interest in learning to play tennis, bring them down to the courts on Saturdays from 9am to 10am. Madi and Gabriel are on hand to show the children how it’s done. Tennis racquets are available and children should ideally wear tennis type shoes.
