Photos Schleifchenturnier 2018

Our annual doubles tournament „Schleifchenturnier“ took place on Saturday, June 23rd!

There weren’t as many players there as in the past, but everyone was in a great mood and with a little more than 20 players, we were looking forward to a great afternoon of doubles.

As always, everyone was paired with another player in every round and Bernd’s fancy program made sure both sides were evenly matched!

thanks all for taking part in the group photo

more warming up

some are quite relaxed before a game

… and some prefer to remain anonymous

the hall we played in

more anonymity

someone’s really happy to start playing

already tired

… and hungry

spectators and fans were there

…honourable guests as well

happy guests

and lots of stretching

some had lots of fun on court

some were tired and decided to head for the bench mid-game

nice of her to get down to the photographer’s level

four thumbs up
