Club Championship Results 2015

General Burns Tennis Club hosted its year-end Club Championship over three days this year on Sept 18, 19 and 20 (2015) due to weather. The results are as follows:

Men’s Singles: Tom Fitzgerald def Christian Martin
Women’s Singles: Laura Wardlaw def Angela Palacio
Mixed Doubles: Angela Palacio and Tom Fitzgerald def Laura Wardlaw and Miro Savic
Men’s Doubles: Tom Fitzgerald and Rob Lalonde def Jiang Xiong and Fengjie Yuan

Friday night (Sept 18) was the mixed doubles final and the weather was great! Saturday the weather held fine through the men’s and women’s singles. Both morning singles matches went to 3 sets and the men’s was decided by a tie-breaker! Christian said afterward that “there isn’t a part of me that does not hurt”.

Saturday afternoon the men’s doubles completed the first set and halfway through the second set the rain came. The finalists finished the men’s doubles Sunday morning. All finalists were great sports for playing over three days in response to the weather conditions this year.

There was a good turnout from the membership for the BBQ and tennis finals. Special thanks to Angela for organizing the BBQ and to Chef Greg for fantastic burgers!!

Thank you to all participants in the tournament this year and to the membership for their support.
