On Saturday, Sept. 17, tennis on Bowen celebrated its season with the Tunstall Tennis Tourney & Social.
There were 24 competitors playing mens and mixed doubles throughout the day. Many spectators cheered on, tears were shed, trophies lifted, and fun was had by all.
The final came down to a super tiebreaker, where the wheels of steel and nerves of fortune braved the emotional pair of Sean Delaney and Rick Bulich. They fell in a heap when the scoreboard ticked over and read 10-7.
They both thanked Roger for his support in retirement. Pam Culver and Jens Diercks took out the mixed doubles championship with sweet shots, deft drops, and self-deprecating words to their Hood Point counterparts.
Huge thanks to all our players, spectators, and the Board of Directors of TBCA who allowed our tourneys to take place on the beautiful grounds of Tunstall Bay tennis courts.
Tania Webb was instrumental in the online organizing of tourney numbers and board liaison. To our two volunteers: Deb Blenkhorn and Court Brousson, thank you for laying the groundwork to a wonderful day.
