On a calm but cold evening (Saturday, 21 September), Wellington Tennis Club held its 2019 Veterans and Masters doubles tournament.
The event has grown over the years from just the contest for the Bryan Lang Cup (for the 35-and-over age group), to the newly presented Ray O’Connor Masters Cup (for 50 years and over), the veterans mixed doubles, and — new this year — veterans women’s doubles.
There was lots of fun during the evening and all teams played to their potential making the most of the calm conditions. All in all, it was a great success with Marcel Glover sorting out the catering with a BBQ, plus a beverage or two to wash it all down.
2019 Wellington Tennis Club veterans and masters winners:
- Bryan Lang Cup (Vets): Maurice Fearon and Grant Nelson
- Ray O’Connor Cup (Masters): Paul Rountree and Tony Tziakis
- Veteran’s Mixed Doubles: Peter Scott and Clare Docherty
- Women’s Vets Doubles: Clare Docherty and Neysa Albrecht
