Mens Day – 2019


Another successful Mens Day drawn doubles tournament was held at Whangaparaoa Tennis Club on Sunday 26th May 2019.

A smaller than usual field of 36 entrants enjoyed a wonderful day’s tennis, along with great food, fun and a lot of laughter.  The weather was perfect with warm, still conditions for the entire day.

Big thanks again to Larry Cross who did his usual fantastic job as the tournament director, and entertained us with another humorous prizegiving speech.

Thanks also the team of gorgeous women  / angels who were on hand in shifts throughout the day, helping with morning tea, rolling lunch, a delicious dinner and of course manning the bar.

This tournament is so generously supported by our major sponsor You Travel Manly (Trish Ryder), who donated a fabulous travel voucher as the major spot prize.

We appreciate the boys from Central Otago, once again making a commitment to supporting our Mens Day tournament, and we thoroughly enjoyed having them back at Whangaparaoa.
