Top tennis spot a three-way battle



A THREE-WAY battle for top spot is looming in the men's open division at this month's Peacheys and Sons Annual Closed tournament.

Stanley Tummon will be at- tempting a seventh Men's Open Singles title with challengers coming from Peter Kamholtz and Brendan Warwick. Anyone else wishing to stop Stanley please get your names in next week.

The event, to be contested on July 30 and 31, features free entry but only members of the Gladstone Senior and Ju- niors Association can enter. All entries must be in by Fri- day, July 29 to be included in the draw.

The tournament caters for singles events in all age groups 12/, 14/u, 16/u, 18/u for both boys and girls. All grade events Division 1, 2 and 3 in singles doubles and mixed. Veterans Gents and La- dies singles and Open Gents and Ladies singles will be held on Saturday morning along with the junior singles events. The Gladstone Ladies struck gold this week after many years of trying to beat Rockhampton in the Intercity Challenge for the Conrad Cup. Gladstone has not defeated Rockhampton since 1996 but this week erased all memories with a convincing victory by well over 100 games.

Mid Week Ladies Co-ordina- tor Jan Street was over the moon with the victory and congratu- lated her team on a great vic- tory. Also a big thank you to the Tannum Sands and Biloela La- dies who joined into the match to make it a Central Queensland affair.
