There was a great turnout for the climax of Kingussie Tennis Club's season.

KINGUSSIE Tennis Club's championships reached their finals on Sunday.

The event saw a fresh and early start to the mixed doubles competition.

As there were only seven pairs this year it was decided that everyone would play everyone else with the top two pairs going head-to-head again in a best of three final.

The event produced several very close games.

At the end of the matches the finalists emerged as Grant Davis and Deb Tait, who had amassed some 36 points against Marjorie and Ken Deans, with 31 points.

As Marjorie and Davis were scheduled to play their singles finals in the afternoon, it was decided to hold the mixed final over.

The event will take place later at a date which is still to be decided.

The weather had decided to stay warm and dry so a very pleasant barbecue was enjoyed by all the members, while preparations for the singles events were made.

In the ladies singles final, Helen Peebles retained her title by beating Marjorie 6-1, 6-2.

In the men's event it was triumph for Davis, who retained his title. He defeated Adrian Ogden 6-0, 6-2.

Trophies were presented by the club president Chris Donald and thanks were made to Helen and Sandy Peebles for the organisation of the event, to Moira Webster for doing the barbecue and to all the members who came along and played, helped in any way or spectated.

Coaching sessions continue on Tuesdays for three more weeks and club sessions on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at the usual times.
