Krause, Kachel race to victory
GYMPIE veteran tennis players Trevor Krause and Jenny Kachel served it up to the competition at the Gympie and District Veteran Tennis Association Patron’s Day at the weekend.
The annual tournament was played on Sunday in ideal conditions and attracted a field of 30 players.
Participants played men’s and ladies’ doubles in the morning before returning in the afternoon for mixed doubles.
Individual scores from both sessions were added to determine a men’s and ladies’ winner.
After some outstanding play and long battles on court, Kachel and Krause emerged triumphant.
Consistency was key. Kachel and Krause had to play well in both sessions and sustain their good play over the course of the day, taking in five matches.
On hand to present the pair with their winning trophies was club patron Ted Dray.
Dray has had a long involvement with the Gympie and District Veteran Tennis Association and thanked players for their involvement.
Meanwhile, Thursday night and Saturday fixtures build in excitement as finals loom on the horizon.
The club publishes updates every Thursday in Gympie Regional Sport.
