Men's Club Championships - Zulch fires his way to Men's title

Gardens Lawn Tennis Club played host to the Men's Club Championship final this past Sunday 14 December. After a gruelling fortnight of intense competition, the two men left standing were Lance "coach" Sawyer and Eric "angles" Zulch.  In the sweltering heat, the two players went toe-to-toe in what turned out to be a high-octane final. Cheered on by a healthy crowd filled with families, friends, tennis aficionados and hipsters to boot, the players went at each other with real vigour and purpose. The first set proved a close affair with Zulch triumphing in the tie-breaker courtesy of some crushing down-the-line backhands. He took the opening...read more

Jean Jooste outblasts the wind to capture Balls of Steel XI

Sunday 16 November 2014 saw the kind of Southeaster that reduces grown men to tears – gusty, relentless, and determined to scatter a tennis player's hope of attaining any sense of rhythm.  Despite the adverse conditions, 13 men lined up to battle it out for the eleventh installment of the prestigious Balls of Steel. The unique 10-point tiebreak format facilitated diverse strategies among the players in the round robin phase with some going for broke, while others played it safe to allow their opponents to self-destruct in the wind. Andreas Loven started like a viking with an axe and caused the first...read more
