Cardross Tennis Club recently hosted the annual Helensburgh and District veterans’ tennis tournament.

The competition is open to members who are aged 40 years or above from Cardross, Helensburgh, Craighelen and Kirktonhill tennis clubs.

In warm, but at times breezy, conditions all players had a great afternoon and the opportunity to play at least three matches in a round-robin format, with the top pairings then going on to contest the finals.

Once the matches were over, everyone enjoyed the post-match buffet and chat.

Hosts Cardross had a strong representation, making up half of the entrants on the day and it was Cardross pairings who won both the ladies’ and gents’ competitions.

Gillian Branch and Caroline McDaid won against Val Pace and Liz Wylie (Helensburgh) in the ladies final, with Steven Carmichael and Harry Gould beating Keith Love and Stephen Humphries (Helensburgh) in a closely fought gents final.

The entry fees from this competition are donated to a charity of the winners’ choice, with the winners choosing to donate to Robin House in Balloch.
