Mixed leagues

The D&G Mixed Doubles Leagues started on  12th July with 4 teams in league 1 and 5 teams in league 2 with a new addition as Lochmaben Tennis Club entered a team.

In league 1’s first round of matches it was the current league 1 champions Dalbeattie A against current league 2 champions Dumfries B but Dalbeattie made sure it was an unhappy debut as they thrashed them 4-0. On the same night Dumfries A entertained Stewartry CSC with a battling draw (2-2) being the final result. In the 2nd round the Dalbeattie A v Dumfries A match was called off due to the weather and this gave Stewartry CSC a chance to go top and they took their chance as they eased past Dumfries B with a 4-0 win.

In league 2 both Kirkcudbright teams started with 3-1 wins as the A team beat Dalbeattie B and Kirkcudbright B eased past the new kids Lochmaben.

This weeks sees Dumfries B entertain Dumfries A and Stewarty CSC travel through to Dalbeattie A and in league 2 Kirkcudbright play the team mates Kirkcudbright B whilst Dalbeattie B travel through to  Moffat to Beechgrove.

In the girls league Catie Palmer and Grace Johnson complete the season undefeated to claim the title from fellow Beechgrove players Tess Wilson and Amy McMillin and Heather & Alison Keal.

In the boys 10s & under this went to the wire as Annan completed a double header against Dumfries B and secured 2 wins to edge past Beechgrove on rubbers won, as both teams finished on 10 points each. This was a great achievement for the team who had to play all their matches away from home whilst their courts were being replaced.

Well done to all the kids and thanks to all the parents and clubs for all their support throughout this season.

Dan Maskell Mixed Doubles

Colin, Sophie, Robin Charlton, Keith, Maureen and Paul

Colin Dunbar of Lockerbie and Sophie Robinson of Dumfries took the Dan Maskell mixed doubles title recently.

The event, in it’s 23rd year, was played at Dalbeattie courts attracting players from all parts of the region.

In the early rounds Colin and Sophie only dropped two games on their way to the final. On the other side of the draw were former champions Paul Boardman and Maureen Johnstone from Dalbeattie who also had a relatively easy passage through the early rounds to reach the final.

With a packed veranda, the spectators were certainly entertained to some thrilling tennis throughout the day and even more during the final.

Both pairings were providing some edge of the seat rallies which didn’t reflect the score line. Despite lots of close games it was Colin and Sophie that proved to be the dominant ones in the big points and took the title for the first time 6-2, 6-3.

In the plate event for the first match losers, Dumfries duo of Michael Goldie and Fiona McCartney took this 10 games to 4 against Colin and Lyndsey Kennedy form Castle Douglas.

Robin Charlton, daughter of the late Dan Maskell presented the trophy to the winners. The trophy, the Slazenger Challenge doubles trophy, was donated by Robin 23 years ago and was won by Dan at Wimbledon back in 1946.
