From the courts

GREYTOWN Tennis Club held its annual championships over the past two months, culminating in an exciting final on Sunday.

The tournament, held in perfect spring weather (global climate change comes to Greytown) was sponsored by local businesses RTS (Pete Koller) and Organics for Africa (Guy Platt).

A large crowd of locals and visitors watched several “ballies” and new young talent fight it out for the honours­.

All the championship finals went to three hard-fought sets, with some weary players slicing, lobbing, smashing, missing, acing and cramping their way to glory. The day finished with prize giving and a braai.

Sincere thanks to the generous sponsors, the ladies who worked tirelessly to arrange snacks and salads, and chairman Ian Hill and the committee for an extremely enjoyable day at the courts.
