Successful Debut in Singles; Singles & Doubles on Tap for Thursday

Quick post since I play at 8:45 tomorrow (and 4:30 for doubles, making it a long day. I miss my car!

I played Syliva Shipley from GBR today and won 60 60. We played on the center court which is the furthest away from the clubhouse. It’s a big court so we had to chase balls a lot. I warmed up twice, with Ann Brown and Lisa Prechtl so I was ready to go. Tomorrow I play Patricia (Trish) Peal, a 6 footer who plays quite aggressively. She has a smooth game and it will be a challenge.

We have doubles as well against a tough team of Betty Maitland and Kim Reed. Reed is new to the 60s (as is Peal) and is a very good clay courter, who spends a lot of time in Spain. I met my doubles partner today, Rosemary Wilson and we have a tentative plan for how to play together.

The weather was great here today…felt just like San Diego, mostly sunny, not too warm or cold.
