On 15th March, Rotary Browns Bay held the fourth charity Jumbo Tennis tournament. The aim of the event was for everyone to have fun and raise money for local good causes – and all agreed that it was a great success and the best yet.
It was held at Albany Tennis Park, and 25 teams had entered. This year it was decided that the event would be a round robin style so all competitors got to play all their matches and no-one was eliminated. During the interval, food was provided by Rotarians, and Patricia at the Brazilian Café. There was also entertainment by Rotarian Jonathon Usher, who travelled up from Dunedin to show his fantastic magic show.
Having amassed the most points overall, the eventual winners were Ray White Albany. They were awarded the Jumbo Tennis 2019 trophy by Paul Mees, President of Rotary Browns Bay.
There were also prizes for the runners up from Sir Peter Blake MERC, and for the best dressed teams.
