Club Secretary reaches ITF Le Touquet Seniors Final

Club Secretary reaches ITF Le Touquet Seniors Final
 
Our Club Secretary, Keith Palmer returned from France last week (mid September 2017) after playing in the ITF Le Touquet Seniors Tournament with players from 5 countries taking part.
 
In his age group he reached the finals of the men's singles but lost 6-1 6-3 to his classy opponent from Australia, Lee Taylor.  He learned later that 2 years ago Lee was ranked World No 4 and a regular seniors player for Australia who had stopped playing in ranking tournaments while making the move from Australia to France in 2016 and taken up tournament play again only in recent months.
 
Keith did have more success in the men's doubles final in his age group winning with his French partner.  Keith says he was an interesting experience as his partner spoke no English at all and he speaks only school boy French!  In practice they had to forget any tactics discussions and focus purely on their own shots!!  Not a bad lesson sometimes.
