Murray Bridge and District Seniors Tennis Association players were joined by a surprise visitor from Melbourne for their last meet of the year.

Although the weather was cool and a few misty showers blew through early in the day, there was a good attendance with 12 men and 10 women present.

A visitor from Melbourne, Bruce Frazer, noticed the association's courts and saw people about to take to the courts while out riding his bicycle, and asked permission to join the crew.

He was made welcome and enjoyed both the company and the tennis.

The morning was spent playing single sex doubles, and from the laughter and comments which could be heard, it was obvious everyone enjoyed the hit.

Four sets of eight games each were played before a lunch break.

Those who could still move post-lunch took to the courts again for two rounds of mixed doubles.

The day wound up with coffee and biscuits at about 3pm.

Members are reminded there is a practice session on Saturday, May 8 at 2.30pm for teams going to the Berri Seniors Carnival.

This will be followed by the AGM at the Murray Bridge Lawn Tennis Association clubrooms and a pizza tea, and all are welcome.
