It was once a practice game but now it is a trophy to be fought for. The men played the women and again were victorious. However all enjoyed the game and were still friends after.

The dynamic Elizabeth Whelan was presented with the Sportsperson of the Year Award by Board member George Truelove to acknowledge her contribution to her sport at the Country Club.

In 2019 she won both the singles and pairs, represented the Mitchell against other districts and regions and played in Dural’s top pennant team. She has now been conscripted to be secretary of the Mitchell District which is already valuing her contribution.

The hot weather did not prevent the playing of both the men’s and women’s pairs. Greg Smith and Tom Trovato won the men’s defeating Michael Kennedy and Paul Van Tilberg. Congratulations to all.
