Georgia Top Racquet-Eers

 
The Georgia Tennis and Country Club team marginally won the annual tennis tournament against the Racquet-eers Club from Kings-ton at the Georgia Club in Duncans, Trelawny, on Saturday, November 17.

Georgia Tennis captain, Ray Schnoor, expressed delight that the Georgia team had won, albeit by the smallest number of games in the history of the tournament. Georgia's three grass courts played well, but gave the usual advantage to home players.

Tony Gambrill, non-playing captain of the Racquet-eers, expressed disappointment at the result.

Wonderful female players

"We have, during the year, developed a wonderful array of female players - four out of the 10 Racquet-eers team. We are disappointed that the Georgia Club could not find even a single lady to play on its behalf. We trust that they will do better next year."

Bruce Hart rallied the Georgia team by bringing his Jack Russell, 'Buzz', to the match.

"He is not an aggressive dog," Hart said, "but he did tend to neutralise the opposition when he ran on to the court during the match."

Gambrill lodged a complaint about canine interference, but the Georgia umpire appeared unimpressed.

The Club House was in good shape, the entry road recently remarled. Thanks were expressed to Sheona Muschett, Dimps Gallant, Anne Hopwood, Monica Ladd and other members of the Georgia Club for their support of the tournament.

Players from all over the world continued to be drawn to this tournament - played almost within earshot of Usain Bolt's home - in 2012 from Britain, South Africa, Argentina, Canada, the USA and Kingston.
