Term 3 Week 10
Week 10 served up mixed emotions as although everyone was
looking forward to what turned out to be yet another amazing
week for Warwick Tennis, we all knew that it signalled the end of
year and a goodbye to some big faces in our club. But boy did we
give them a good send off.
After Annabel once again ditched social play on Sunday, some say
for this time for another club, Ryan was left alone to run the 2017
Social Play World Championships. Ryan, Ronak and Tyrell
comfortably took the ‘Waves’ title after letting Hickson out on loan
early on in the competition. Banszky showed his usefulness
sending his team to the Eliminator title, but only after Elise
showed Simmo how to really play tennis with one of the most
unorthodox shots you will ever see. Ronak then once again showed how social he is by stopping at nothing to prevent Hattie having any fun in the Around The World event, taking that title too.
However the big focus of the last week of term was Wednesday. Finals day was hyped up as going to be the best day of the term and it was definitely up there. Big shout out to Pete who lost two semis the day before to make the day a lot easier to plan out! The highlight of the day was definitely the mixed singles final putting lowly social player Ryan argent against Women’s team captain Grace Crozier. Could a social player actually beat a team player? ... No! After having two set points on serve in the first set Ryan dramatically bottled it, only to win the second and then re-bottle it in the third set tie-break. Basically Grace showed us all that social players should stick to social play.
Apparently other finals were happening at the same time, Bosler and Charlotte overcame Alice and, a very ill, Hayley in the women’s dubs for the third successive year. I didn’t see Clement on court so I assume he just gave Imran the win in the Men’s singles.
The chirpse dubs rightfully went to big time chirpsers
Grace and Cameron who beat V and Alice. V however only
realised halfway through the match that he’d not chirpsed
his girlfriend Alice but a different Alice, and so purposely
lost the match to avoid disqualification. Don’t worry mate,
we all make that mistake. To top it off, an epic Men’s dubs
match ended with Pete and Imran taking the title, playing
their first match in the competition against crowd favourite
pair, Jacko and mini Jacko. An off putting outfit and big
serves from Jacko couldn’t rock the eventual winners who
won it in a tense second set tie break.
beat Fabris in the final of the bluff tournament to round up finals day and to initiate some PCP’s (pre circle pints). Circle was emotional but as good as ever with everyone on fine form, Wimbledon circle turned into Purple circle within minutes with pints being downed and spilled everywhere as per, the Aussies were annoying as usual and the finalists were given one final chant each before we all descended into the wonders of Pop. There were tears, laughter and a few VKs. It was a night to remember if you can remember it, but was unfortunately the end.
We wish everyone an amazing summer and all finalists luck on life post Warwick. See you next year!!
