Jimmy wins 2011 de Beers SA National Doubles Championships!

North West’s Jimmy Schlebusch and Christo Potgieter set the 2011 de Beers S A National Doubles Championships alight when they first defeated second seeds Mike Tootill and Paul Atkinson by 3 games to 1 in their pool – basically the semi-final,  and then in a  power packed display outgunned defending champions, Craig van der Wath and Gareth Schnehage in straight games in the final.

Potgieter, who has pistol sharp reflexes and uncanny anticipation , ably supported by the counter balancing consistency of Schlebusch, allowed the more experienced combination of van der Wath and Schnehage no lattitude nor opportunity to get in to the game, and are very worthy winners of the 2011 title.

Northerns league notice – 28th April, 16th June

To all clubs
League matches have been scheduled for Thursday 16 June so that we could finish the league on time. Northerns has realised that this could be a problem for some clubs and are happy if clubs organise to play the fixtures scheduled for this evening earlier. Please ensure that if you choose to do so you must just keep the Northerns office informed by sending through an e-mail with the details of when you intwnd playing the fixture. Please note however that the bye-laws for moving fixture dates applies. This means that the change must be to a time convenient for both teams.
Additionally please let your sides know that there is an entry form on the website for the Tuks team tournament.

Also, please remember that the 28th April is also during the holidays. Please organise with your opposing team captains to ensure everyone can make the game.

Northerns Masters Satellite 1

Hi Guys

So, the Northerns Masters Satellite tournament was held this weekend.

Well done to Centurions  Johan “Gaza” Hammes and Musa “Samusa” Malinga who faced off in the final of Northerns Masters Satellite 1.

Gaza proved still to be too experienced for Samusa winning 3-1 but he will be the first to admit that our BEE partner is just getting better and better. Well done guys.

Centurion also had the most entries (7 in all) and the Masters committee appreciates our enthusiasm and involvement.
