Club Champs 2018

Mother and Daughter battle it out on club championships finals day.

Brackley Tennis Club had a great day in the late Summer sunshine, on September 2nd, made even more special when the mixed doubles competition saw mother Pauline Leftwich facing her daughter Ally Morgan over the net.

Pauline is used to fierce competition, having played for the club teams for many years.  Now at the fabulous age of 80, she made it to the finals with her partner Keith Fox, and with the perfect combination of experience and youth, they beat Ally and her partner Ryan Horbatowski as the crowd at the club looked on in delight.

Pauline regularly still plays in the teams “It is great to see her playing so well at 80 – she is an inspiration to us all” said club member Mary Bullock.

Ally didn’t go home empty handed as she won the ladies doubles with Janet Sandford, when they beat DI Gamble and Shirley Griffith.

Any one thinking of joining the club can contact the Membership secretary via the website, or ring 01280 841604.
