Tuesday night big time tennis

Hi Tuesday Night swingers,

There needs to be a major shake up at ATC House with too many underperforming teams. Last years premiers have seen their G Train derailed and miss finals. All the teams missing finals need to take a long hard look at themselves and also look each other in the eye and say whether “I have done enough”. Or simply be able to say “I did something”. Have you let down your team and club and I could go on…….

 

The Cats of 9 tails or lives could still sneak into the finals at the expense of the Anti-football  League who have a bye in the Last round. However, these things can be traded and negotiated to ensure the right team makes it. Other teams to definitely make it are Sons and the Moon, Mighty Duckers and Don’t Argue. They have all benefited from a favourable draw and opportune wash outs and wind outs. Lets see how they go when the pressure gets ratcheted up a few turns.

 

Next week is Pizza night so get to the club early for a 7.15 start. Pizza’s will be served at 9.00 PM so bring $10 for the privilege. We will announce finals teams and award winners or losers.

 

For finals you are expected to play all 3 players unless you only have 2 in the team. This is to maintain the spirit of the competition and ensure that the Sons don’t block out the moon. Players must of played at least 2 matches to qualify for finals.

 

cheers

Tuesday Night Tennis Spring Update

Hi Tuesday swingers,

The cellar dwellers generally get desperate around this time of the season when the reality hits of no finals. However there is hope with Bob coming up with an innovative solution –trade for points. Bob’s team the “Demon fade outs” is keen to trade up and buy points off some of the top teams. They obviously have more wealth than talent. If I was Bob and the other cellar dwellers I would sell points to the top teams and make a real killing. The Cats of 9 Tails who have been starved of points in the last couple of weeks and would be happy to trade.

 

The Guru is happy to take this a step further and set up a “trade hour” prior to play next Tuesday. Each team will need to have a representative there but the problem being we don’t have 9 tables. This could take off however and needs to be cash only!!

 

Four weeks left and the “Sons and the Moon” and “Anti Football League” are 1 and 2 respectively. I am sure they will now pull out the big guns to consolidate and play Moon and Luke heavily over the final rounds. The Mighty Duckers are back in town with the return of their brick wall, Rob, in the last 2 weeks. Don’t Argue have snuck into 4th place with Mr Whippy, Anthony, doing his thing. The Cats of 9 tails have lost their sting and sit 5th but are close enough for a Cats charge in the final stanza. The G Train is an outside chance in 6th but has not left the station this season. For the other 3 put your trading hats on and work the floor and forget the court.

 

No comp this Tuesday. If the weather is Ok for those non-party animals we will have a casual hit at 7.30. Let me know if you are planning to come. Party animals are welcome but will need to pass the baseline test.

 

cheers

Tuesday Night Tennis-Comp is back on

Hi Tuesday Night Swingers,

 

Comp is back on this tuesday night and the bye team is….. “Mighty Duckers”. Please come down for a hit –you need the practice!

 

The “Anti football league” had their 4th win on the trot beating the Mighty Duckers who were unfortunate as Ethan played right handed this week.

 

The “Cats of 9 Tails” had the first draw of the season with the “Demon Fade outs” who did not live up to their name. There was a high pity factor from the Cats of 9 Tails after the first set. The rain set in to save the fade outs in the third set. That’s what can happen when you don’t have a roof.

 

“Dangerous Argument” had their first win of the season over the generous “Complete Punts”. I have never seen an Adam Palmer coached team show so much empathy to the opposition but this will change. The hard nosed commentator in him will return. Now Leigh and Mitch have tasted success who knows where it might finish. It might still end in tears but let’s not be negative as they are no longer road kill.

 

The G Train is back rolling with a win over the Sons and the Moon who are up and down like the preverbal seat. Last year’s grand finalists still have a lot of ground to make up for finals and need the courts to be doctored like they were for last year’s grand final. Some people say get over it –no chance!

 

8 weeks to go before finals. Do your darnest and leave nothing on the court especially not your car keys.

 

 

cheers

Tuesday night tennis – September

Hi Tuesday swingers,

The Mighty Duckers (Isy Kerry and Rob) have collapsed in the last 2 weeks without their brick wall –Rob. The Cats of 9 Tails (Matene, Grant and Margaret still injured –replaced by overseas player from Thai Tennis Federation) have taken charge at the top with Cats tennis, but they won’t want that in the finals. Making a big move into second place is the Sons and the Moon, not to be mistaken with Sons of the Moon (Moon, Ben and Shaun). Moon’s days of cultivating the young guys are nearly over as they all have improved too much. The Anti Football League (Ethan Kavisha and Luke) and Don’t Argue (Anthony, Anthony’s brothers, sisters and cousins and  Glenn) have suddenly realised they are not out of their depth although Ethan must be relieved when he returns to the relative safety of Sat afternoon A grade. The Complete Punts (Adam, Andrew and Jenny) have had no luck with the draw –that’s what I have heard ringing in my ears- and along with Dangerous Argument (Mitch and Leigh) are far enough behind not to have been accused of peaking too early. The interesting team are the Demon Fade outs who are 2 years behind their franchisor. Bob thought he was on a good thing when he signed the transfer papers to leave a winning combination, (The Guru and Margaret no wonder they had back problems), but the Jones boy, the treasurer and the defector have a lot of ground to make up if they want to figure at the business end.

 

Sorry the lights have been on the blink and we are trying to get them fixed. The treasurer might offer a discount if they are out for another week. We have our best people from the council on the job –sorry for that also.

See you tomorrow night but that might be difficult.

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.

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
