The competitors at Montepiedra, Winners Graham Hensby and Alison Vos sharing the trophy.

Friday May 22nd was a busy day of tennis on the Costa. Two visiting groups of players were out visiting and participating at two different venues.

The first group from Abingdon LTC joined in with the regular morning players at the Montepiedra sports centre. Over 3 hours the 16 players competed in mixed doubles sets with winning pairs playing each other and changing partners and the losing pairs doing the same.

After the event the only two unbeaten players were Graham Hensby [Abingdon] and Alison Vos [regular attendee], congratulations to them both. Also thanks to Terry Carter the Abbingdon team organizer who brings his old club friends out to visit most years. A padel tournament was being held at the same time and afterwards both sets of players enjoyed a BBQ at the club.

The afternoon venue was on the courts at the Campoamor golf club. This tournament involved 3 teams consisting of 3 mixed doubles pairs each. Team 1 consisted of a group of players from Lincoln. Team 2 was called North/South and consisted of a group of friends from Northern and Southern England. Team 3 consisted of players from a tennis group in Guardamar with a couple of players from Campoamor. After 3 hours of competitive mixed the result could not have been much closer.

RESULTS- 1ST North/South 7 wins
2nd Lincoln 6 wins
3rd Guardamar 5 wins

There were 4 tie-breaks out of 18 matches, so the result really could have gone either way.

Congratulations to the winning team of Gary and Jackie Clark, Ian and Dawn Higson, Chris Hopkins and Lynn Williamson. They can be seen in the middle of the picture. Also congratulations to the only unbeaten pair of Terry Manley and Helen Coggle from Guardamar.

We hope to see both teams out again next year for more social and competitive tennis.

Both events were organized by LTA’pro’ tennis coach, Steve Durie. If you would like to learn tennis or participate in social doubles play sessions and tournaments,
