New date for Dalkeith tennis finals

tennis: After flooded courts prevented Dalkeith Tennis Club’s annual championships being held on August 27, the main finals day will now take place on Saturday, September 17 from 1pm onwards.

Players’ availabilities mean that alternative arrangements were required for the other two finals – the ladies’ doubles will be played on Wednesday, September 21, at 6.30pm, and details of the men’s singles final will be announced in due course.

Finals: men’s singles: David Dowell v Gareth Stewart; women’s singles: Sam Fearnley v Lorna Lettice; men’s doubles: David Dowell and Bill Fleming v Grahame Forbes and Phil Richardson; women’s doubles: Meg McDermott and Louise Kirkpatrick v Lorna Lettice and Jessica Lettice; mixed doubles: Michael Roarty and Lorna Lettice v Bill Fleming and Louise Karbownicki.
