Deepdene's 2017 Club Championships were held on the first weekend in October under mostly sunny skies.  Congratulations to the reigning champions pictured below.

 

Michael Young and Olivia Fleming claimed their first singles titles, while it appears only the second time ever that all three doubles championships in a single year were won by family combinations.  

 

Many thanks go out to all the members that participated in each of the events, and to Tim Harris for his time and effort in organising the championships for the second year running.
