Last Thursday (September 6) saw the semi-finals of our Gloucester District Tennis Winter Competition played under sunny skies.
Julie Munn took home the raffle prize. Pearson (1) vs Munn (2) - A clear result here with Team Pearson coming out winners (5/31 to 1/23) to gain first place in the Grand Final (20 September). Despite the scoreline, the tennis was played hard and at a high standard. Julie and Leanne took the first set 6/1 which must have fired up Betty & Sue as Team Pearson didn't drop another set. Well done ladies. Harris (3) vs Murray (4) - Cathy Smith played for a travelling Hilary Kite, and helped Team Murray to a close fought 3/27 to 3/26 win over the more favoured Team Harris. Set 3 (Cathy & Di vs Joannie & Ruth) proved to be the only difference & gave Murrays that 1 game advantage.
Murrays play Munns tomorrow for the chance to take on Pearsons in the Grand Final.
All local tennis players are invited to come down to the courts and watch the action.
