Local tennis stars ace the competition. By Douglas Legg


Tennis Team

Four keen tennis players decided to enter the Boland North Tennis Men’s second league in 2014 playing under the auspices of the hitherto defunct Caledon Tennis Club. The idea behind entering the second league was to measure the team’s strength says Bokkie du Plessis, the Greyton member of the quartet. This he believes was after an absence of plus minus 10 years since the former vibrant Caledon Tennis Club ceased to exist.

Using the former Caledon Tennis Club’s facility as their home base, the foursome consisting of Alfred Dowling, Charles Robinson, Braham Harris, all of Caledon and Bokkie du Plessis won this league rather comprehensively. This success prompted them to play in the Men’s first league in 2015 which they again won, all be it after a very competitive competition.

The league is played in the Boland Country areas and consists of clubs representing Bonnivale, The Koue Bokkeveld, Ceres, Worcester, Robertson, Wolseley and Caledon. What was noticeable was the excellent facilities that all these towns possess which is a far cry from the local facility here in Greyton.

The guys practice on a weekly basis and should anyone be keen to join the Caledon Tennis Club with a view to playing league or just to practice kindly contact Bokkie on 0825763370.
