A very enjoyable day was had on 4th May by all who took part in the trip to Pakuranga, for our annual inter-club fun tournament.

It meant an early start in the dark and fog for those leaving from Rotorua, but by the time we arrived in Pakuranga it was a warm sunny day. 6 women and 5 men from Rotorua made up our team, with a Pakuranga player filling in for one of our men. Unfortunately Dave had to retire injured early on after straining a calf muscle, but everyone else made it through unscathed.The Lynmore players gave it their best, but Pakuranga were too strong for us on this occasion, winning most of the matches and the total games score by a healthy margin. It may be a different matter next year though when we are on home ground!

The home club put on a delicious lunch and we all enjoyed their hospitality, with post-match drinks and conversation sitting on the sunny deck overlooking the courts.

The rain held off (mostly) all weekend and a successful and enjoyable two days of tennis took place, with some great matches to watch and take part in. The men's doubles final on Saturday was a real family affair with two father and son combinations competing, Oscar and Logan Nathan edging out Sean and Hayden Martin to win the title. And sisters Ramari Raureti and Wynel Raureti-George narrowly beat Rhonda Pike and Trish Baird to take out the women's championship. On Sunday four pairs took part in the mixed doubles, and this was won by Wynel and Sean, with Trish and Alby finishing second.

The women's doubles players, all looking happy and eager to play.
