For the first time this year, a doubles tournament was held on the Sunday before the teams competition began and the ACT had the winners in the 65+ competition (average ages) and the runners-up in the 35-44 competition.  Congratulations to John Forrest and Sue Parker and Kathy Matheson and Evan Williams.

Everyone enjoyed the friendly atmosphere at these modern air-conditioned courts and there was plenty to enjoy off the courts as well.  The Territorians were a little over-confident about the “dry” season and the masquerade ball on the lawns of the casino was rained out at 10:30 pm.  This didn’t stop a large portion of the crowd moving inside to surprise a two-piece band with their enthusiasm.
