From the Tennis Club we have these odd notes for Tournament. When these notes came in the team was not definitely selected but the following were likely possibilities.
B. O'Connor, winner of NZU singles in 1938 and 1947; NZU Blue, highly ranks in Wgtn. LTA ladder.
R. Fukins, winner of NZU singles in 1938 and has performed well in NZLTA Tournaments for many years.
H. Davidson and J. Walls, winners of Wgtn. Doubles Champs, in 1947. and NZU winners in 1948.
R. Arbuckle, well-performed ex-junior champion, and W. Pritchard, are amongst other possibilities.
Amongst the women, several members of last year's team are possibilities, including J. Foden and J. Robbins. Avis Reid, who played for VUC in 1946-47, and represented OU it. 1948, is playing for VUC again this year. Newcomers are Val Turner, one of the singles reps., and R. Mazengarb, B. Young and June Scott.
The men's team is very strong and chances of success in these events are very hopeful. On the women's side, while our representatives are not as strong as the men, we are hopeful of some success and know that our players will all do their best.
