Tennis Club

Tennis Club

With balls almost unprocurable, tennis players are faced with rather lean prospects for the next few seasons. Fortunately, the Varsity Club was able to purchase a number of balls since last season, so with careful combing of the slopes of Salamanca Road by members, the Club should be able to function for some considerable time.

The Annual General Meeting of the Club was held on September 16th, when the following officers were elected:—Patron, Mr. S. Eichelbaum; President, Mr. K. J. McNaught; Vice-Presidents, Colonel St. J. Beere, Mr., Justice Fair, Colonel St. J. Beere, Mr. Justice Fair, Professor F. F. Miles, Messrs. J. R. Elliott, H. N. Burns, G. F. Dixon, C. Evans-Scott, R. A. Wright, R. Parker, I. McArthur, M. Fraser, C. S. Plank, and E. G. Budge; Chairman, Mr. N. G. Foley; Hon. Secretary, Mr. M. O'Connor; Hon. Treasurer, Miss N. Turner. Committee: Misses R. Turner, D. Filmer, A. Reed and M. Bell-Wilson, Messrs. R. Moss, J. Igglesden, B. O'Connor, and B. O'Reilly.

The opening day was held on September 19th, when Wellington obligingly turned on one of its really fine days. Some fifty members attended, including the Patron, the President, and two Vice-Presidents, Mr. G. F. Dixon and Colonel St. J. Beere.

An interesting and keenly-contested Yankee Tournament was won by Miss Helen Hampton arid Mr. Peter McKenzie, after a closely-contested final With Miss Mary Bell-Wilson and Mr. Jack Walton.
