 Mixed Doubles Tournament - a big day at CPC

What a great day at the club. Perfect weather, the pistes looked magnificent, catering was fantastic and best of all, there was some seriously good play from competitors from across the state and overseas.

Congratulation to all participants, including the winners Sreng Sorakhim (overseas ) and Frederic Vencatasamy from Fusion. Special mention to Vinze and Trish, our top performing team, they ranked a worthy 7th out of 44 teams. Well done to all concerned, you can view the full results here. 

And a big thankyou to all who helped make the day such a success

Robert Pozzobon for mowing the grass in readiness, Wayne for an extraordinary amount of preparation, raking, setting up & maintenance, Rex & Kathy for a helluva lot of organising, JP for Scoring and Di for registration duties and photography,  Paul who stuck his head out to introduce a new format.

Ron for organising the prize envelopes and cleaning up, others that helped in cleaning up, setting up and putting away including Leigh, Michael, Marija, Vinze, and others. In the kitchen: Carol, Barbie, Margaret, Marion, Gwen, Coleen. Cakes supplied by: Noella, Elaine, Gwen , Mary Muscat, Vicki Martin,  Di and JP. If we have left anyone out ...our thanks (and apologies!)

Happy team of kitchen helpers at the Mixed Doubles Tournament, beautiful food for the players and lots of laughs in the kitchen.

Please say yes

As the long roll call of helpers (above) for the tournament shows, we have members willing to lend a hand. However, there are some tasks that we continue to need assistance with; openers particularly a Saturday, helpers for upcoming tournaments and events and sometimes for maintenance duties. 
Helping out just a little will lighten the load for everyone. Sometimes  just a half hour of your time will make all the difference. So if an opportunity arises where you can assist the club please say yes!  Or send a message to Rex using the button below saying how you would like to help. 
Yes! I'm happy to help out
