Grand Final

Hi Tuesday swingers,

Another season is done and dusted as Making a Racket overcame Beatles with Bite 2 sets to one. The huge support amongst the crowd was the key factor that drove them on. In the end it was a convincing win but left the door open under the challenge system. However being the sports we are at Beatles HQ we will not challenge. I note there was a breach of protocols with no drug testing performed on the night especially on Ged the Fed who was hot to trot . It was a break out match for the Fed who is obviously a late bloomer. Still think he was on something! He was ably supported by those solid hombres Rylan and Pat who were hell-bent on long and exhausting rallies. I know they wanted to wear out the oldies Bob and Margaret.

 

I understand that Pat has received an offer from a rival club next season and his currency has just gone up as a premiership player. Perhaps we need to go out and rattle the tins. But who leaves after winning a premiership. Yes Adam that’s right the last person was Buddy Franklin.

 

After 2 grand final defeats in a row a name change is in order for the Beatles to the Magpies. This could lead to a change in the pecking order. No pun intended.

 

Everybody starts from Ground zero next season. We will start selecting teams in mid-July for an early August start. We will be looking for new blood preferably the type that flows.

 

If you didn’t play this season let me know if you are interested or possess the necessary qualities.

 

cheers

Grand Final next Tuesday Night

Hi Tuesday Night swingers

 

The guru was moved to remark that with the transfer of just a few points there would have been 2 different grand finalists. The standard of tennis was through the roof and the spectators were in awe. Or at least they didn’t say much. However, the record books will show that Beatles with Bite (Bob Margaret and Yours sometimes truly) meet Making a Racket (Rylan, Pat and Ged) in next Tuesdays Grand final. The great Balls of Fire (Adam, Andrew and Jenny) and Monkeys (Isy, Rob and Glenn) were magnificent and certainly failed better than they have ever before. Their reputations are enhanced but it will be a long winter of discontent.

 

We understand that a devastated Adam Palmer will be off to see a hypnotist this week to make sense of it all and it will be interesting to see what they say to each other. His tennis was still good but his commentary was a bit off.

 

Grand final week will be big and I was going to check with Richard and Jonny what festivities have been organised.

 

Eleesa, I have organised with Rossdale for extra parking but please bring your camera and we can send photos of the impending traffic chaos.

 

In the event of a Grand Final wash out the team that did not lose a set in the semi-final is the obvious winner. We have always sort of done it this way. Not sure who that favours. Can you have a look at that Bob.

 

Come along to join the throng, and toast the Beatles with Bite at nights end.

 

Best to sum up with what Ernest Hemingway said “A man is not made for defeat. A man can be destroyed but not defeated”. Sounds a bit sexist to me.

 

cheers

Tuesday night Semi Finals

Hi Tuesday swingers,

 

Well done to our award winners last Tuesday night. I have forgotten who they are but well done anyway.

 

We have 4 elite teams ready to go head to head in the semi’s this Tuesday night. Top team Making a Racket plays fourth team The Monkeys and Second team Beatles with Bite plays third team Great Balls of Fire. This is sudden death and the winners can literally go into the trophy pose as they will be in the grand final.

 

Come down and soak in the atmosphere or dew in the air. Be inspired!

 

There is a caveat, If it rains or the temp drops below 15 c at any time during the night the top 2 teams go through to the grand final. Bob can you bring a thermometer.

 

cheers

Tuesday Night Tennis

Hi Tuesday swingers,

What an epic match on Tuesday night. Shaun and Moon coming from the clouds to win in three tight sets from the luckless but certainly not clueless Andrew and Jenny. They simply lacked the inspirational chat from you know who. Moon has improved out of sight although there was some support from Shaun despite Moon’s post-match comments.  

 

Other matches saw Bob’s Beatles with Bite storm to the top of the ladder with a classic performance of polished precise and clinical tennis (Run out of superlatives) against Rylan’s, Making a Racket. Margaret has firmed for the MVP and is undefeated to this point. Checking through the archives this is unprecedented at this time in the season. Margaret must be close to having her own blazer like the Fed at Wimbledon. The MMc insignia would be perfect.  Bob, of course, was not playing but was there to organise the beer. Good job Bob.

 

The Monkey’s returned to winning ways and are a threat, especially now that Rob has recovered from chasing puffing billy the week before. He certainly ran out of steam last week. Rod Smith, the Steve Bradbury of tennis, had his first match since reaching the semi finals in Wangaratta back on Australia day and could not reach those dizzy heights. But then again none of the opposition pulled out here.

 

For those that are struggling just be grateful I am leaving you alone at this stage. Only 4 weeks to go give us something.

 

cheers

Tuesday night tennis

Hi Tuesday night swingers,

 

The battle for the finals is heating up and there is a real possibility that last year’s winners (Ballers with Attitude) will be off skiing in June rather than preparing for finals -just like demon supporters  September. This will be a massive disappointment to Moon Shaun and Anthony who will have to explain this to their many followers on the internet.

 

At the moment Making a Racket (Rylan Pat and Ged) and Beatles with Bite (Bob Margaret and the Guru) are going shot for shot and blow for blow at the top of the ladder. This could be a new rivalry that lasts a few weeks. Way down in the dark zone, Buddy Holly and the Aces are making their presence felt with a couple of wins and Aya is now playing in glasses which will open up new horizons for her including the ball at the back of the court. We thought Aya played well enough when she couldn’t see but she had to rely on cute hearing.

 

The Monkeys (Isy Rob and Glenn) and Great Balls of Fire (Adam Jenny and Andrew) both look dangerous and are full of belief. You can see it in their eyes when they walk in. I would expect the belief to be snuffed out over the next few weeks and the glazed look to return.

 

For the other teams, out of respect, I will not comment.

 

cheers

Bigger than Ben Hur

Hi Tuesday swingers
The start to the new season was bigger than Ben Hur, perhaps that is a piece of fake news, however we had three solid matches and one mis-match. We have 9 teams and the bye worked well with Anthony’s team already having a well earned rest. It had been a tough pre season for them and often difficult to work our who’s shout it was.
 
There are already issues about commitment of players to the comp with 2 players stating they will put an overseas holiday ahead of their tennis. As the guru said, It‘s not like the old days. Aren’t they paid enough.
 
A great start to the competition tennis career of Jenny Beatie who teamed with Chicken Palmer to withstand the might of Federico and Andrew (part of Rafa’s million dollar stable) and win in straight sets. Rafa was actually coaching from the sidelines, however it was not a great start to Rafa’s coaching career. Jenny demonstrated some of her cardio tennis talent that has even challenged some of the Monday night luminaries but not all of them.
 
The Milne’s teamed together, much to the discomfort of Ben, to snare a hard fought win over the Smiths. Did I hear the cry “No Coby no Smiths”.
 
The mis-match match saw Elissa as a singles player not able to beat her 2 opponents –Izzy and Shaun. Matene and Winni will be filthy on Elissa for letting the team down.
 
Margaret was in scintillating career best form and carried her partner to a three set win over Ged and Anthony. They were all sizzle but no bang in the end.
 
Look forward to our full complement next week
 
cheers

Tuesday night Grand Final

Hi Tuesday swingers,

 

Congratulations to “Oh Danny Boy” who won the grand final and by so doing took out the most prestigious title in tennis in greater Aspendale. Sorry St Louis. They did it in style by losing only one match during the season. Sorry to Rafa your records are falling but please don’t end up like Tiger Woods. Injuries and pain killers take their toll.  Alas, we did not sing the “song” as Adam Palmer was not there.

 

The match was full of drama with the “Smithsonians” winning the first set as Coby and Aya were on fire. The second set was on a knife edge when Danny hurt his twice reconstructed knee and had to come off. At lease it wasn’t Dan Menzel. Kate and Matene then had a monumental struggle with Coby and Rod as Aya was unable to watch from the stand. Matene and Kate prevailed 7 games to 5 and Rod was dragged off the court by Coby and Aya. The guru thought Rod had played well but this is big time tennis and there is no place for sentiment. The third set was an anti-climax 6 games to 1 as Matene and Kate played at full rat power and Aya had seized up after sitting out the second set.

 

Great effort by all concerned including the peanut gallery who did not miss a shot.

 

We will get back to all concerned about next season but will have a break from comp through July. Expect a start first or second week in August. I am happy to go down for a hit if the weather is good, but use the time to recover from injuries and shake out those mental demons.

 

Always next season.

 

cheers

Tonites Grand Final

Hi Tuesday swingers

The GF is tonite with the Smithsonians playing Oh Danny Boy. Should be a ripper with great weather forecast. I have to say that! Come down and join the fun. Palmer didn’t make it and after losing one of the best semi finals played in a long time, he shrugged off the disappointment to send us on a great magical mystery tour on Friday night. That strong forehand grip on the mike was the difference.

 

Also bad luck to Old Salts with their gun player Wayne injured at the death, although Coby was masking a sore shoulder. What intrigue and suspense.

 

The topic of conversation this week has been will Coby and Aya let Rod play, and how will Oh Danny Boy cope with Matene having a bad back. Will he play, how can he play. Is he Lazarus?

 

The carnage just goes on and on. Is the season too demanding or are our Tues swingers as soft as butter.

 

All will be revealed tonite.

 

cheers

Tuesday night tennis

Hi Tuesday swingers

“Oh Danny Boy” are on the verge of tennis immortality as they are 9 points on top with 2 rounds to go. We may never see the like again. Lets hope not.  Are they really that good –Killer Kate, Matene the hit man and Danny the dicer. Is the rest of the competition that putrid. We’ll find out soon.

 

Issy and the Stooges, Old Salts, Smithsonians and Dream Team are battling it out for finals spots. Four into three don’t go and expect the courts to erupt over the next 2 weeks as these flawed athletes and wanna be’s put it all on the line. There is only 3 points difference between the 4 teams.

 

Injuries are the other big story of the season and we will conduct a scientific study at the end of the season to determine if there is too much load and stress on our flawed but high powered athletes. We may extend the scientific study to look at the impact of the tides and the moon on Tuesday nights. The guru said to me where is the old fashioned G and D. They just don’t make them like a couple of us any more.

 

Please remember the last home and away round is June 6 which is pizza night and all players are wanted even those on crutches. We also want more Tuesday swingers showing how they swing at the social night on Friday June 16. Get your own table or come on your own and we will still take your money. Remember its our own Adam Palmer and none of us have forgotten what a pest he is on the tennis court. This time he is going to be a beatle.
