Queens Park Tennis Presidents Day success

Gympie Queens Park Tennis 18-08-2020

President’s Day, a special annual event, was held at the Gympie Queens Park Tennis Club on Sunday.

The perfect weather provided an enjoyable day of tennis for all participants. President, Greg Hampson, was pleased to present winning prizes for the American Tournament event to the man and woman who won the most games for the day.

It proved to be a family affair with men’s winner being Michael McDougall from Maryborough and the women’s winner being his sister, Leanne Evans, from Gympie. Runners-up were Bob McPherson and Jenny Kachel.

The next Sunshine Coast Fixtures will be held on August 30 at midday.
