The fourth round of pool play in the Scarbro Caro Bowl tennis competition in Auckland on Friday evening served up a series of one sided results in both the men’s and women’s matches. Top of the table Blockhouse Bay men’s side swamped bottom team Herne Bay 6-0 while Parnell stayed close behind the leaders with a clear cut win over Royal Oak by the same score. In both of these contests the older and more experienced players on the winning teams were simply too good for their younger opponents.
