Pannar mixed doubles tournament

THE Pannar mixed doubles tournament was held on Sunday in perfect weather conditions.

There was again an excellent entry of 23 couples, mostly visitors from the Pietermaritzburg, Howick and Nottingham road areas.

Hope to see you all again next year!

This is proving to be a very popular tournament with wonderful prizes, five-star food, and excellent tennis. Our thanks to Pannar for their very generous ongoing sponsorship, Tarr Roses, Organics for Africa, and Rhino Charcoal for their contributions, and Wembley College for the use of their courts.

Thanks also to Joanie Koller and the tennis ladies for the delicious lunch and tea eats.
