Parade of  Champions

This being the Club’s Fortieth Anniversary year, the celebrations continued at the Annual Club Championships, this time with a parade of former champions. Invitations had been sent by the Anniversary Committee to all the past Champions. Seventeen of the past Men’s and Ladies’ singles champions, many no longer members, came along to support the day. They were each individually introduced to the spectators and presented with a certificate marking the occasion. Those present were:

Mens Champions:
