The Spike or Victoria College Review 1937
Activity on the men's ladder has been maintained at the pace set in previous years. Ferkins and Morrison have enjoyed almost undisputed right to their respective positions, but below them, places have changed continually. From time to time, keen players prove that it is possible to reach the upper rungs of the ladder in one season. This year Joe Hartley started from scratch and is now well-established in third place. The ladies' ladder continues to function in a semi-dormant condition—the indications are that there will be keener rivalry during the coming season. The top six players at the close of the season, were:—
Ladies: S. S. Phillips, D. Briggs, J. Grainger, P. M. P. Edwards, K. Pears, M. Palmer-Brown.
Men: R. McL. Ferkins, N. A. Morrison, J. H. Hartley, B. Brock, L. B. Sandford, F. Renouf.
We are not often privileged to have a New Zealand title-holder in the Club, and so are happy to congratulate Roily Ferkins on his part in winning the N.Z. Men's Doubles Championship.
Congratulations are also extended to N. A. Morrison on obtaining a V.U.C. Blue. They are hard to get.
