Men’s Premier final between Greendale and HBLT was taken out by Greendale and the Reserve grade between HBLT New Vines and HBLT Mature Vintage was won by the New Vines, as the name would suggest this team is made up of younger players, and they proved too good for the older Mature Vintage. I wonder what names they will come up with next year. Perhaps ripening fruit and ageing Brew.
The Ladies A doubles final between HBLT Legends and HBLT Talents was won by the Legends, and the B doubles between Hastings and Hastings other team, Heretaunga B was taken out when Hastings triumphed over Heretaunga B.
The A league whilst not strictly an Interclub based competition was won by the Robbie Reynolds led HBLT team and just like the pre season comp where the Reuben Cooper led HBLT team came out on top, this too was a closely fought affair.
The Men’s senior Residential winner was Luke Donovan, he beat a tiring Jason Kitching, who had come through a very hard fought 3 set 3 hour victory over Damon Curtis. Donovan had no trouble overcoming an ageing Trevor Hinton in his semi.
The ladies winner was Lynette Rowe, after she had accounted for Carole Rowsell, in her own 3 set semi final tussle, she then went on to beat Karen Wakelin in the final in straight sets.
