Twenty-four club members spent a fun day at the courts in a doubles tournament. Thanks to Leigh Selk for organizing this event which gave older members, newer members and social members an opportunity to enjoy playing with a variety of partners. Congratulations to Karen Huber and Richard Wright, our 2016 champions! See pictures below.
Our club hosted an international tournament June 2-5, with players attending from Canada, New Zealand and the
United States. Of the 22 competitors, Bayfield fielded 11 players. The tournament
was played on courts in Seaforth and Bayfield.
There were two competitive categories. In the A-Flight, Dave MacLaren, of Bayfield, won gold, winning eight out of eight games. Cal Scotchmer, of Bayfield, won bronze after a hard fought game in the finals with Patrick Dugan, of Palm Springs, California.
In the other Flight, the winners were Brian Cummings, of Elora, ON, first; Jim Butts, of Mission Hills, California, second; and Paul Emmett, of Toronto, third.
There was a good crowd in attendance at the Sunday finals to cheer on the hometown favorites.
“This was our second annual International Open Tournament,” said Toni
Kemp, president of the Bayfield Club. “With over 100 members we are
one of the largest clubs in North America. The caliber of our players is
making its mark, not only in this tournament, but in other tournaments
on the circuit.” Thanks to Gary Lloyd-Rees for his photography. Check out the slideshow below for weekend highlights.
