2015 Finals

We have a gallery of pictures which captured several matches and the overall great atmosphere -
CLICK HERE FOR THE PHOTO GALLERY

Superb weather conditions and fabulous matches all round made Sunday 27th of September 2015 a memorable finals day at Falkirk Lawn Tennis Club.

With eleven Club Championship finals to be played, matches started early and continued throughout the day, ending with the prize-giving ceremony in the early evening.

There were tight matches, gruelling battles and some spectacular winners.

However, this year was clearly Tim Goldie’s. He appeared in six finals, winning five of them and at fourteen years of age, became the youngest ever player to win the Gents Singles and Gents Plate events .. Well done Tim!

Sarah Irons also went into the record books winning the Ladies singles title for the seventh year in a row.

There was a stunning top level doubles final with Callum McRae and Andrew Taylor narrowly beating Allen Gibson and David Fisher.
This was a new competition "Gent’s Doubles, pick your own partner" and a trophy was introduced this year in memory of past members Alan and Dorothy Dick to recognise their valued input to the club over the years.

The club would like to thank all participants in the Club Championships and also John & Rae Shirridan who kindly facilitate provision of the flood light tokens which are necessary to keep us playing all year round.

Graeme Laurenson & John Thow were both kept busy throughout the day taking action photographs of play and the trophy presentations – thanks to both.

There were also refreshments and a BBQ provided for both players and spectators. Compliments to the following: Henrietta & Findlay McRae for providing the BBQ; Bill Nisbet and Gordon Allan for providing the rolls, sausages and burgers; the chefs on the day – Blair Nisbet, Ross Marshall and Andrew Johnston; the Ladies for providing the great home baking.

Finally a word of appreciation goes to Alan Gibson who again organised another successful Club Championship event – many thanks to Alan. He was supported by his organisation helpers - Coach Ray Pollock, John & Teresa Bryant, Jim Ferrier, Colin Marshall & Graeme Laurenson.
