Inter Condo Friendly Regent Grove versus Regentville Condo

The Regentville condo tennis team traveled away for the first leg of a two leg friendly match against Regent Grove condo based Choa Chu Kang North 7. It is within short walking distance to the Yee Tee MRT Station. Although heavy rains threatened to sideline our friendly tennis match, we were fortunate enough that it stopped and the sun came up just in time to assist with drying up the courts. Regent Grove condo had very nice courts which were located at the top of the 5th story multi storey cark park very similar to that of Regentville condo.

The courts were partially sheltered from light rain and sun by a cloth/canvas meshing material held up by a structure at up at the back of the courts. Since it was still raining at around 4:45pm, I was concerned that we would have to postpone the match to a later time or cancel the entire match all together. Luis the organizer for Regent Grove condo however still informed me confidently that the match was still on which puzzled us slightly as I was wondering how could we possibly manage to dry the courts in time? When we all arrived just shortly before 5pm, the courts were still very wet but the rain had just stopped and the sun was out. We proceeded to dry the court, it was only then I realized why Luis was confident that we could try the courts very quickly. Regent Grove condo has 3 tennis courts sitting side by side and on each side of a tennis court, there were these big drainage holes that drained the water downstairs. So therefore, we would not encounter any problems with wet balls of patches once the water was totally drained from the tennis court. I think it took only like 15 minutes for the courts to be completely playable. In the end, we were only around half and hour or so behind schedule before the first match started.

We had a total of one singles match, two mixed doubles matches and a handful of men’s double matches. Since we had a very large group, the match was played in a race to 6 games where Ad rules apply. At 5 games all, a tie breaker will be played to decide the eventual winner of the match. The Regent Grove tennis players consisted of an ALL Filipino expat group based here in Singapore. There was only one Singaporean player who was in their team, and he was a former Singapore National Player and coach Hock Chai. A handful of the Regent Grove condo players were also members of the local Filipino Tennis Club whom our Filipino Regentville players were already acquainted with and it was nice to know that they were playing having a friendly game against their fellow country men here in Singapore. Like the Regentville condo players, Regent Grove condo also has a large number of tennis players so we were able to have a number of matches. A handful of these matches were tough and our opponents were really good, we had a couple of close matches which was very good as it tested the resolve of both teams. It was a very good learning experience for us having gotten a chance to play with many seasoned players who had experience playing tennis at a competitively such as Jojo and Hock Chai. We were honored to have the opportunity of having such seasoned players playing with us.

On behalf of the Regentville tennis team, I would like to thank Luis and Richard the organizers for Regent Grove condo for hosting us and being such wonderful hosts, as well as all the Regent Grove tennis players who came down to make this even a huge success. We look forward to the return leg in May where Regentville condo will play host this time round. We had a fun filled weekend of entertaining tennis and made many new friends in the process.
