What Happened?


In this last year we played 408 individual sets of tennis (370 in 2015) 

and on that basis we conclude that this end of year we all appear

in this order on ...

The List we call Colin

Mr Darren Griffin

Mr Philip Taylor

Mr Raymond Wheeler

Mr Kevin Watson

Mr Peter Philips

Ms Karen McGlynn

Mr Colin Butler

Mr Richard Wood

Mr Leslie Monk

Mr Tony Tomkins

Mr Andrew Slade

Mr Philip Trew

Mr William Falco

Mr Paul Shuter

Mr Derek Causton

Mr Christopher Wilkinson

No 1 for 18




All matches were as well matched as they could have been

so every player had an even chance of making progress or otherwise.
One thing is certain, staying at the top of Colin's List

was as difficult as not staying at the bottom of it.
However it is my wish that Colin's List is a meaningful challenge

for all players including our precious subs.


Best Subs

The subs have an in-built disadvantage to do well on

Colin’s List but nevertheless

Mr Richard Wood


the highest rank of No 2 in 2016



Furthermore Mr Philip Trew was unbeaten in all

9 matches he played with a variety of partners.


Just two players improved

their Ladder positions in 2016



Up by 4 steps 

Mr Peter Philip



Up by 2 steps 

Mr Raymond Wheeler


Best Match Play
Queen Sleeps are a measure of matchplay excellence.
Queen Sleeps were awarded to

Mr Darren Griffin

on 6 Occasions

in 2016
Mr Philip Taylor scored 4 Queen Sleeps


Mr Tony Tomkins scored 3




For services to Tennis Friday, court booking and the gathering of subs ,

and the keeping up of the spirits and other selfless undertakings for the good of Tennis Friday,



Mr Philip Taylor.



Our top player in 2016 was again without doubt

and by any measure our

No 1,


Mr Darren Griffin.

He met the most difficult challenge of getting there and the more difficult task of staying there for eighteen consecutive months while at the same time supporting Tennis Friday beyond the call or demand of others.
Happy New Year.
