Dumbleyung Pennants Tennis
Sunday November 12, saw a nearly full contingent take a bus trip to Tarin Rock. A confident new/old look team, it was anticipated that all would have a great time travelling together. We arrived early, thanks to our red-necked, blue balls, double faulting captain, bus driver extraordinaire, and since this bus trip, a 4 serve a week man – what a guy!
Chloe McDougall (N⁰ 1) and Carly Smith (N⁰ 2) enjoyed the challenge, proving they could hold their own, having a marathon match to only go down 5-7, 6-4 to the experienced pairing of Lisa Pearce and Sharon Robinson - who have been playing tennis together for many, many, many years. Many can keep hitting back those dynamite hard shots from the Tarin Rock duo but our girls acquitted themselves magnificently - both liking the hard ball.
Mention must be made to our men this week, as they said they had won more sets than the women (though the scribe has her suspicions). Winning 5 sets this week includes the comeback of super fit, Scott Angwin, Tamara Bartram, Tom Pearce (whom all the ladies would like to play with - lucky Julie Ramm) and daughter and father pairing of Pippa and Greg Bairstow (playing their 1st mixed pairs pennants together and a 100% rating with Pippa on board). Jane Coad and Howie Ward (after injury) also both won 4 sets – well done to everyone for giving it their best! Final score, Dumbleyung 22sets 162games to Tarin Rock 14sets 140games.
Many enjoyed the delicious food and well-deserved cold drinks, with stories that could have been really ‘wild’ as time passed. Further mention must be made of the entertainment on the way home from the No1 and No2 women (no names mentioned) as they continue the good form of days gone by - an interesting, informative and colourful bus trip. We have all learnt how it is very important to have enough serves a week to keep you trim, healthy and fit. Advertising has a lot of merit and obviously the younger generation are very keen to follow the suggestions.
