STURT LAWN TENNIS CLUB - 2016 DOUBLES CHAMPIONSHIP
Doubles Championship RESULTS - Sunday 24th April 2016
18 men played 2 sets of doubles each, in 3 groups of 3 pairs. The 3 group winners plus the next best pair
progressed to the semi finals. Then the two finalists played a 9-game set to decide the CHAMPION DOUBLES PAIR.
Congratulations to Paul Stanley & George Curtis who defeated father-and-son Tim & James Chataway.
After a delicious BBQ lunch prepared by Rob Slade (and helpers), 5 men and 5 women enjoyed the Mixed Doubles
tournament. Each pair played the others in 4-game sets. After lots of close matches with dozens of deuce's,
Petch (Antony Peciulis) and Annette Wessling emerged as undefeated winners. They received a bottle of sparkling red as
their prize, which they immediately shared with the rest of the players.
Joint runners-up were Jill & John Langford and Sally & Michael Gerrard, who received a bottle of Wirra Wirra
Church Block Shiraz donated by Petch.
CONGRATULATIONS to George Curtis & Paul Stanley - doubles champions of the 2015-2016 season.
