Finals Day

We held our Annual Finals Day on Saturday 15/9/18 and we were blessed with sunny, slightly breezy weather.  Before the first round of three matches, Chris Beach, the OCA President, performed an official opening ceremony of the new pavilion.  So I would again like to express the Tennis Sections’s gratitude to the main OCA committee […]
