Farmer Tournament 2023

The Farmer Tournament, an invitation mixed doubles named in memory of Rye LTC board member John Farmer, took place on Sunday 13th August. A mixture of cold gusty winds, sunshine and showers were the order of the day for the 33 couples who had entered – and the many spectators who turned up to show their support. The bar did an excellent job of quenching everyone’s thirst and the Pink Kitchen provided a delicious BBQ lunch.

With all group matches completed, the semi-final saw previous winners Scott Brotherton and Vicki Lowe battle it out against Charles and Harriet Taylor. After a tight match, the former champions went on to face Fiona Lepine and her son Jason, who had come through the other semi-final against David Brooks Miller and Claire Lane. Facing a handicap of Love 15 every game, Scott and Vicki nevertheless stormed ahead in the final to take the trophy, which was presented by the tournament organiser Amy Maynard.

Many thanks to Amy for organising a very successful day in spite of the somewhat inclement weather.
