Annual Pakuranga Trip 2019
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.
