The Spike or Victoria University College Review June 1925

Easter Tournament

Easter Tournament.

The Club was represented at the Annual Inter-College Tournament by the following:—

Men's Singles—R. R. T. Young and F. H. Paul.

Men's Doubles—R. R. T. Young and F. H. Paul, C. G. Ellis and B. O'Brien.

Ladies' Singles—Miss M. Tracey and Miss Sheppard.

Ladies' Doubles—Miss Tracey and Miss Sheppard, Miss Thwaites and Miss Madeley.

Combined Doubles—R. R. T. Young and Miss Tracey, F. H. Paul and Miss Sheppard.

Miss R. Gardner, who was originally selected for the team, was unable to make the trip to Christchurch. We regret to report that no championships were captured on this occasion, but nevertheless our representatives contested the finals in two events. Hopes were raised of a win in the Men's Singles when R. R. T. Young defeated Turner, of Auckland, who had previously beaten E. W. B. Smythe. Young, however, was unable to continue in winning mood and was obliged to acknowledge defeat to Robinson, of Canterbury, in the final.

Miss Tracey and Young were also in the final of the Combined Championship but were unable to succeed against E. W. B. Smythe and Miss Ballantyne.
