Saturday, October 8: Netta Noack and Heather Edwards played a singles match together.
It wasn’t Netta’s day as the luck seemed to have deserted her and she managed to get stuck in most hoops.
On the other hand Heather had a more fortunate game and quite a few roquets and good hoops to her credit.
She pegged out easily with 26 to Netta’s 16.
Jan Trengove and Pam Boler drew to play against Helen Bryant and Glenn Johnson.
Jan and Pam enjoyed a really good attacking game all through and with good management of their chances, they scored the win.
Not too sure how Helen and Glenn fared.
Monday, October 10: A great practice day with Ana Kusetic and Marija Buturac playing against Netta Noack and Pam Boler.
Ana and Marija were in good form for the day and with good strategies and took the win 26, to Netta and Pam’s 18.
Wednesday, October 12: Quite a cold day today and an early start for the afternoon. Jan Trengove and Glenn Johnson challenged Helen Bryant and Chris Palazzi.
A good start for Chris and Helen, but they were soon left behind by Jan and Glenn. Although Chris and Helen managed to score a couple of breaks (three or more hoops in a go)
they weren’t able to improve their position while Jan and Glenn kept their balls well out of reach and made it very difficult for their opponents. Final score was a win to Glenn and Jan 19-15.
All four enjoyed the battle of the game.
Ana Kusetic, Marija Buturac and Wilma Battye played a three sided game till bell time.
All enjoyed the to and fro of their game. Final score Marija, 20, and Ana and Wilma 10 hoops each.
We all adjourned to the Japanese Garden Restaurant where we joined with Pat and Gordon Rowe to share afternoon tea and thank them for their participation in our club.
We wish them well as they move to a new abode in warmer climes. Pat is pleased that there is another croquet court nearby.

Round 1 of the Spring Night Tennis Competition will be played at Cowra Tennis Club next Wednesday night the 12th October. A good number of entries have been received so far. The comp will run for ten weeks, with the finals to be played on the 14th December. Play will start at 7pm each Wednesday night and all teams should be finished by 9:30 pm or earlier if teams make use of the shared spare courts.
This is usually the best comp of the year as the warmer weather and longer days makes outdoor night tennis most enjoyable and many matches are played in a very social atmosphere. Teams of 2 men and 2 ladies are required, but individuals can enter regardless of your standard of play as the comp covers all grades. Each team in the comp is regraded every week with teams moving up and down the ladder based on their previous performances. This ensures that most of the time teams play against teams of a similar standard.
If you have ever played tennis before, this is a great opportunity to meet new friends, play a family friendly outdoor sport, have fun and improve your fitness. It's not too late to get your entries in if you would like to play tennis. We still have a couple of teams looking for players and there is always a need for subs to fill in for other team members.
Entries and enquiries to Lorraine on 6342 3457 or Cindy on 0414 702 502.
