The tennis season is well under way with members enjoying great tennis opportunities including junior tennis, senior tennis, ladies midweek, senior inter- club, junior interclub, senior singles ladder play and a business house tournament. Around 50 junior ten- nis players are taking part in clinics on Saturday mornings. They are improving their skills with Constance, Monica and Allan and assisted by Simon and Jean. The senior players have just completed an exciting Business House tournament which attracted five teams -- Jason Schwarz's Gold- water team, Karen Robertson's Te Whau All Stars, Nick Jones' Mudb- rick team, Pete Syred's Phi Group team and Brent Gibson's Waiheke Island Resort team. The standard of play was high with any of the four top teams capable of winning, but in a close final, the winners were Pete Syred's Phi Group of Pete, Julian Heine, Alfred Meier, Dave Chamberlain, Loris Wysocki, and Barbara Woods. Mudbrick was second, Goldwater third and Te Whau All Stars fourth. The senior tennis Christmas tournament takes place this Sunday. CADDIE'S CHAT Help wanted: Raffle winner Margie Swan needed a trailer to get her Christmas hamper home. The Christmas Spirit was in full swing for the final event in the women's golf calendar. Numbers swelled to 42 with the inclusion of Jan Higgins and her team of 12 novice golfers from Auckland. Mixed teams took to the field for 10 holes before a luncheon with Brenda Long belting out tunes on the key- board. Jeanette Muggleston was first with a 27 fol- lowed by Helen Magee, Pam Briggs and Heather Smith -- all with 26. Carrie Brown, nancy Gregory and Adair Dromgoole took the remaining prizes with birdies going to Jeanette (2), Helen and Pam. Agnes Tully was nearest the pin on the 13th-hole. The exchanging of Christmas gifts became a frenetic game in which the outcome was unclear until the final roll of the dice. Margie Swain had the lucky ticket in the raffle taking home the huge Christmas hamper. Summer golf continues with an informal nine hole and summer cup competition. Twilight golf continues through- out December and January. All are wel- come.
