On the day of the Ladies Final at Roland Garros, Ross Tennis Centre’s first social doubles tournament was organised by Steve, the coach.

Just as in Paris, the wind was strong and swirling, which made it hard to play from one end in particular. Undeterred, the players took to the court for some fun, competitive tennis.

After round-robins lasting 25 minutes each, Steve totalled the number of games and the results were as follows; in third place were Lynn O’Drisoll and James Snell, second place were Martin and Val Davies, and in first place Jamie and Rosie Farr, (pictured right).

With thanks to Steve for the delicious refreshments and a chance to find out from James about life at Bath University. It was a lovely afternoon. Another tournament will be held later in the summer, check rosstenniscentre.org for details.See this week’s paper for more stories like this, available in shops and as a Digital Edition now.
