Costa Blanca mixed tennis league tournament

0

TO MARK the end of the Costa Blanca mixed league season 2016/2017, a mixed tournament was hosted by Juan Manglano at Club de Tenis Buenavista, Benissa , last weekend.

Couples from eight different countries competed throughout the afternoon, playing five matches each.

The overall winners were Moira Smith and John Vickers who won the final playoff against Elaine Lurie and Neil Cooper.

Prizes were presented at a barbecue after the tournament. The Division 1 trophy was won by Club de Tenis L’Ancora, captained by Gary Wood and the Division 2 winners, who also gained promotion were the JITC B team from La Sella captained by Debbie Wilcock.

Over the eight month season matches have been played home and away throughout the Costa Blanca area and it was noticeable that the competition this year was more intense than ever.

Teams from JITC La Sella, Los Pinos, L’Ancora, Altea Hills, Buenavista and Sol Park all had to contend with a longer and more unstable winter weather period, resulting in many matches having to be re-arranged.

The success of the league was largely due to the considerable efforts of the organisers , Noelle Vickers from JITC La Sella, Pedreguer, Graham Wallace from Sol Park, Moraira and Paul Silcock from Altea Hills Club.
