Vets Mixed Doubles - Trew/Slaney and Harris/Finlayson make the finals

The day started overcast with a slight breeze, perfect weather for tennis. There was competitive and enjoyable tennis played in both groups. 

Davis Trew and Judy Slaney ran away with Group B, with Andrew Webster/Jo Kingswell as runners up.  Group A was a lot closer, Nicola Ellis and Barry Barnes led the group after 2 rounds, with a 3 game advantage over Monica Finlayson and Kevin Harris.  This meant Monica and Kevin needed a 7- 3 win to go through as Group A winners, and they did just that.

Judy and David played Nicola and Barry in a one set decider, which in the end could not have been any closer. At one point Nicola served for the set, but in the end it went to a tie break.  Judy and David raced away to a 5-1 lead, Nicola and Barry fought back to 6-5 but eventually lost it 7-5. 

Monica and Kevin played Jo and Andrew in the other decider winning 6-3.
