Steve Durie writes ……. The Thursday tennis group from the Campoamor golf club enjoyed a prize giving meal last week at Market Street restaurant in San Miguel de Salinas.

The cups were presented by Campoamor head coach, Steve Durie, and were awarded to the first and second placed players with the best performances throughout 2021.

Covid has been a huge disruption over the last two years but Thursday afternoon tennis has been a very special escape for many of the participants, being able to socialise in the open air and afterwards on the terrace of the hotel with wonderful views all the way to La Manga.

The group are a mixture of nationalities, ages and standards and are very accepting of new players joining in.  We all had a fantastic time at the restaurant thanks to the wonderful staff who were very accommodating.

The 2020 winner Jimmy Tranter and runner up Lisa Mansfield Tranter, were unable to attend and celebrate their exploits from the previous year when there was no celebration due to Covid.

Congratulations to the 2021 winner Christine Reed and runner up Nathalie Tissier, pictured.
