Man is not motivated by tournament points alone. It has been decided to donate a trophy to the member of the VUC team who scores highest Haslam Score. The trophy will take the form of a delicately moulded Venetian glass mug or "ansa," mounted on a carton base. The carton base will contain one dozen of the best malted available. The trophy will be known as the "Crooks Ansata."

Unfortunately the Tournament tennis team it still only tentative, the last two wet week-ends having prevented the final matches from being played. The women are chosen and have been practising regularly, but as yet only three men have been selected.

Nancy Turner is once more playing first single and has every chance of getting well on in this event.

Avis Reed, the second single, hasn't Nancy's chances of success but the experience she will gain from singles play will be very valuable. Of the women's doubles Nancy and Rae Turner will benefit much from their long experience of playing together and because of this have the advantage over Sue Ilott and Loris Webley who are inexperienced in tournament play but who have been practising very consistently.
