Tennis Tournament at Hinwick
Effort for Podington and Wymington Nursing Association
A successful tennis tournament was held at Hinwick House on Saturday in aid of the Podington and Wymington Nursing Association. Three courts at Hinwick House were utilised, by the kind permission of Lieut. Col. and Mrs. B. B. B. Orlebar, for the mixed doubles, and a court at Hinwick Hall, by kind permission of Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Robinson, for the ladies' doubles.

The entrants totalled twenty-five couples and the winners were: Ladies doubles Miss Sale and Miss Walker, Bedford, 1; Mrs. J. C. Parker, Wellingborough. and Miss Sanders, Hinwick, 2. Owing to the indifferent weather the mixed doubles were unable to be completed so the last two pairs tied for the prize they being Mr. and Mrs. J. Bowers, Bozeat, and Mrs. Bletsoe, Hinwick, and Mr. Tilsley, Rushden.

A bridge tournament was also run in conjunction with the tennis the winners being: Mrs. C. Sanders, Wollaston, 1; Mrs. A. S. Dodds, Wymington, 2.

The duties of M.C. were capably carried out by Mrs. Bletsoe and Mr. L. Robinson. Tea was served during the afternoon by Mrs. Orlebar and staff. The proceeds of the combined effort amounted to £8/1/6.
