GEORGE TENNIS NEWS - George Tennis Club had its annual general meeting recently where honorary members were especially recognised.
Club chairman Marius Bezuidenhout said in his report that the club is very proud of its history of over 100 years, to which the honorary members each contributed and left a lasting legacy.
At the meeting the tennis courts were named after the honorary members, who described the gesture as an unbelievable experience and privilege.
Bezuidenhout said the club had a fantastic year in terms of results, winning three leagues in the Eden District: the men's, ladies and mixed doubles A leagues. They were also the regional winners of the Top Guns club competition, the biggest club competition in the country, and they played at the regional finals hosted at Sun City.
There were also fantastic individual achievements in the year. Sonja Botha was nominated to represent South Africa as a member and captain of the team to play at the Super Seniors World Championship tournament. The tournament took place last year between 16 and 29 September in Umag, Croatia, where they had the new experience of playing on red clay courts.
Eden Tennis players June Smith from Mossel Bay and Hanle Cronjé from Wesbank, Oudtshoorn joined Botha in the team.
Karen Deltenre of the George Tennis Club was selected to represent South Africa at the Senior World Championship in Portugal in August this year after having a top season and excellent results. She was awarded the Marie Erasmus merit player of the year award for all her achievements and the example she sets.
