David Hope triumphs again in the 60+ tournament

Posted on February 25, 2015 | in NewsTicker, Tournament | by

On Sunday 22nd February 2015 13 lucky members contested the CURTC Category Tournament for handicaps 60 or greater.  Spread across 4 groups and playing on both courts the group stages provided a few unexpected results based on handicap differences and the fact that these were all played off level.  The group winners who qualified the semi-finals were Tony Kennedy, Hugh Markus, Annie Plews and David Hope.

In the first semi-final Annie set herself up with a 5-3 lead but was gradually pegged back and a classic match went to 5 games all and 40-40 before Hugh won the final point. In the second match Tony Kennedy couldn’t keep pace with last year’s champion David Hope who took the match 6-3.

In the final David raced to a 3-0 lead before Hugh could register a game which he took to love. His success was short lived and David took the next three games to complete a 6-1 win and the 60+ Category Tournament for the second year running.
