Renmark Tintra was given a scare
on Saturday, but emerged with a
narrow 8-7 semi-final win over
Barmera in division one tennis
Tom Waterson and William
Koskinas got Barmera off to a
dream start with a 6-3 win over
David Strongman and John Pick.
Renmark Tintra soon found its
rhythm, winning the next three
doubles matches, with Matt
Woolford, Dean Schumann and
Pick all performing well.
Two wins in the women’s dou-
bles helped Barmera level the
overall score three sets apiece.
Waterson got Barmera off
to a strong start in the singles,
with an important 6-3 win over

Alexander Reincke and Paul
Reid, before the latter pair hit
back with a win of their own.
Cobdogla then showed its
class, winning the next four dou-
bles matches in a row to take a
handy 5-1 lead into the singles
Reincke won the opening sin-
gles match 6-2 against Nettle to
give Berri some hope in the con-
But any hope Berri may have
had of a win soon washed away,
as Cobdogla won the remaining
five singles matches, including
strong wins by Katie Wheeldon
and Benita Dillon.
Berri scored two late consola-
tion wins, one of which was a
forfeit, to reduce the final margin
to seven sets.
Renmark and Cobdogla will
now face off in the division one
