ON Sunday Greytown Tennis Club hosted the annual Wimpy Farmers vs Town tennis tournament. The tennis proved to be competitive and closely fought as usual with the outcome being determined in the final matches.

At the halfway mark it was the Townies who held a commanding lead of 85 games over 77 for the farmers.

The second half was the mixed doubles and the farmers consolidated to take the final victory of 208 to 206 over the Townies.

Prizes went to: men’s doubles winners Clive Edkins and Pete Koller, runners-up Richard Cyrus and Bobby Pearson; most deserving Mark Thomas and Ian Hill.

In the ladies doubles, winners were Joanie Harison and Pam Paul; runners-up Lynne English and Debbie Comins, most deserving Kim Steyn and Louise Hill.

In the mixed doubles the winners were Clive Edkins and Trish Köhne; runners-up Dawie Pieterse and Debbie Comins, most deserving Keith Cowie and Kim Steyn.
