THE Inverloch Tennis Club’s annual
open club championships, held on the
Friday evening of December 11, saw a
mix of youthful and slightly more mature
players vying for the various titles.
First to be decided was the Women’s
Singles where Michelle Krohn took away
the Club Coffee Mug on offer by overcom-
ing Megan Harris in a contest where the
scoreline probably didn’t reflect the flow
Then in the Men’s Singles young gun
Jack Clements held out David Bulbu-
lian, one of his perennial rivals from the
Flying the flag for the club’s matur-
ing contingent was Ben Morgan, who
notched a creditable and combative third
The doubles field ranged widely in av-
erage age, from the very youthful pair-
ing of Jack Clements with his younger
brother Ben, right through to a couple
of mature age beginners stepping up to
their first outing on the big stage.
Ange Williams and Michelle Krohn took
the early running over Ben Morgan and
Alistair Gamaldi, Paul Burns and Rob
Ewing, and Robert Van Oss and Roger
Thorrowgood, who were bravely testing
the waters at championship level.
But then came the final where the Cle-
ments boys settled the issue by prevail-
ing 6-4 over club stalwarts Williams and
Van Oss and Thorrowgood put up a
convoluted argument that the champi-
onships should be a handicapped event,
taking experience, age, rankings and
number of paid lessons into account.
They then appointed themselves as
chief handicappers and determined that
the whole night was won by Van Oss and
But there was some debate over the ve-
racity of their calculations, so they had
to content themselves with the inaugural
“Valiantly Propping up the Field Award”,
for which they were each presented with
a dairy milk chocolate.
Back in the real world, young Ben Cle-
ments takes-home his first club ‘Cof-
fee Mug’ trophy while big brother Jack
added another brace to his collection,
already boosted by his wins in the night
doubles and Junior Championships only
two days earlier.
So that made it four coffee mug tro-
phies in just over 48 hours for the young
player - a great return by anyone’s stan-
dards, and healthy signs for the club that
such youthful talent is coming to the fore.
Clements sweeps the field
