Singles Comp - Finals

After 8 weeks of round-robin matches plus semi-finals, the Collaroy Tennis Club in-house singles competition is now at its Final stages.

As to be expected, the semi-final matches were closely-fought and exciting to watch. There were also some differences between them. The match between Colin and Andres was played during a damp evening, a few minutes after the rain on Fri. (18 Sep).

Wet, but all smiles

Being relatively new to the club (1 yr), I really didn’t know what to expect in terms of both how serious it would be taken, and standard – but without exception everyone was welcoming, good-humoured, sportsmanlike and I’ve got to meet lots of other players.

COLIN, SEMI-FINALIST

The semi between James and Peter was played on the true blue plexi-cushion court on Sat. (19 Sep); as both players were keen to try this surface.

The other two matches (David vs Edgar and Wil vs Shane) were played on synthetic grass courts when the spring sun was at its best – quite hot.

Unfortunately, no photos for Wil as he usually takes the action shots – he couldn’t take photos and play at the same time.

I have been playing tennis for 2-3 years, and during that time it’s mostly been doubles play in the social events at Collaroy. When COVID hit, a number of members started playing singles and I am now hooked. Can’t blame my doubles partner anymore, its all down to me.”
