MEMORIAL AWARD

MEMORIAL AWARD

WINNERS: The Trooper E.W Capp memorial award went to Les Darcy and Greg Alchin.

WINNERS: The Trooper E.W Capp memorial award went to Les Darcy and Greg Alchin.

This included the enjoyable “Friday night festivities” – where players enjoyed canapes and wine – and the introduction of two commemorative events. In recognition of the club’s uniqueness and long history, the Trooper E.W Capp and H.S Robinson memorial awards will now be presented every year.

While they played very different roles, the committee has decided to acknowledge their contribution and connection not only to the tennis club but the region  – and the nation. The inaugural Trooper E.W Capp memorial award went to the winners of the over 55’s Mens Doubles Les Darcy and Greg Alchin. While Vicki Kuba and Helen Burge took home the H.S Robinson memorial award after winning the over 55’s Womens Doubles.
