DETAILED RESULTS 2023
NSW AC 3 & Under Singles, 4-5 February 2023
This event was held at Mosman because of the extended period required for renovation of the courts at Tempe. You will see that Ron Buist played in the blocks, but was replaced by Ted Woodley in the Y knockout. Ted was originally expected to play on both days, dut after a brief hospitalisation during the preceding week was not well enough to play on Saturday. Thanks to Ron Buist for agreeing to fill in for Ted at short notice.
The weather was great both days, if a trifle hot by the end of each day. Many thans to all at Mosman CC for making the event such a success, specially their President, Cali Craig, Games Captain Penny Paterson (Assistamt Tournament Manager), Ron Hympherson (referee) and the catering and grounds staff. The courts were mown three times in the 5 days before the tournament, and the result of this extra mowing was obvious. Lawn speed was better than I have seen at Mosman for some time. Lunches were available for purchase both days, alomg with a plentiful supply of biscuits, buns and cakes to go with tea and coffee.
In a very tight competition, no player was able to go through undefeated. Two of the 4-player blocjs were decided on net hoops, with 3 players on 2 wins each.
Alison Sharpe was a worthy winner after an excellent final, where she beat Trevor Bassett 26-8, in a game which went doen to the wire, the c;pseness of the battle not properly reflected in the score.
