Lovely afternoon spent watching the wonderful women of Hove Park Tennis Club compete for the Ann Leegood tournament trophy. Congratulations to joint 3rd place Laura and Katarina, 2nd place Penny and really well played the overall winner Dinah.

2023 Jim and Marjorie Denman Mixed tournament 

Played on 15th October, organised by Tony Denman.  The final mixed doubles tournament of the season was completed at 7.00pm - under floodlights for the the first time ever. With all 32 players present, the atmosphere throughout was excellent. The overall standard was as good as previous tournaments and there was a competitive but friendly spirit generally.

The semi finals were keenly contested but Phil Hennessy, Laura Woods, Steve Arnold & Jane Healey all went out at this stage. Steve was particularly unlucky as he tied in games with Martin but went out on countback.

This left Darren Pollard, Martin Patrick, Debs Clarke & Patricia Pollard to compete in the final. Debs eventually won the Women's section of the tournament and Darren was the Men's winner.

2017 Anne Leegood Tournament (Ladies doubles)

On Sunday 30th July 2pm start – organised by Neil Dickson. Another lovely afternoon in the company of the wonderful ladies of Hove Park. The Ann Leegood again produced some very classy tennis with very little between all competitors, so it proved to be a tight affair. Four players finished in a tied 2nd place with 17 points apiece – well done Margy, Claire, Morna and Sue Sinclair. However top of the tree with 20 points each were Angie and Pauline who ended up joint winners – well played to both of you.


2017 JIM & MARJORIE DENMAN Memorial Tournament

On Sunday 17th September 2017 members from various teams met to play in the annual Jim and Marjorie Denman memorial mixed doubles tournament. We started with six rounds of matches in which each player played in four rounds. The successful group winners were Jo Davis, Dinah Rae, Rita O’Regan and Margaret Oldfield from the ladies section and Darren Pollard, Stephen Milonas and Martin Patrick from the mens section. Steve Arnold and Thomas Pollard finished equal on games won but Steve kindly let Thomas go through. After two keenly contested semi-finals Jo Davis, Rita, Stephen and Martin went through to the final to play out two 10 point tie breaks to decide the winners of the tournament. Once again all four finalists played very well but just as in 2015 the winners were Jo Davis and Stephen Milonas.
