The other match saw Legal Eagles victors 13 sets to Peppin Planners 11 sets.

Three set winners for the victors included Tom Wettenhall, Matt Close and Alan Wragge. For Peppin Planners, Amelia McCrabb was the sole three set winner.

The DLTC had a successful ‘Aussie Open’ on Friday night with about 70 people in attendance.

They witnessed an excellent unofficial club championship with Jon Gatacre the victor over Rob Wettenhall 6-4.

In the battle of the foot faulters Harley Moore and John Henderson were too good for Lachie Campbell and Nick Metcalfe winning 6-4.

The club would like to give a special mention to Colin Bull, the chair umpire for all the matches.
