    Peter R. Phillips

"father" of Brandon Veterans Tennis, now re-named  

  'The Peter R. Phillips Veterans Tennis Championships'

The Peter R. Phillips Veterans Tennis Championships


Thirtieth Anniversary Milestone !!


This year is the 30th year of the existence of our Brandon Veterans Tennis Tournament, now to be re-named "The Peter R. Phillips Veterans Tennis Championships".

For those of you who might not know, the 'Brandon Trophy' was competed for among the British West Indies Territories from 1948 until 1992. The dominant players were selected to  play for the British West Indies in the Davis Cup Competition. The Davis Cup Authorities ruled, in 1992 that the West Indies would no longer be permitted to play as a unit as they were really a group of independent countries. The Brandon Trophy was then, sadly, discontinued.

On a business visit to Trinidad in the late 1970's Peter Phillips, then living in Nassau in the Bahamas, ran into the Trinidad tennis players of his Brandon years and they reminisced on the wonderful times of those days. The idea of resuscitating a gathering of the tennis players of that time was raised and Peter undertook to arrange such an event. It took place in Nassau in the Bahamas at the Ocean Club on Paradise Island in 1981 and the "First Caribbean Invitational Tennis Championships (Brandon Veterans)" came into being. It was a resounding success and quickly became a fixture, with tournaments being held annually in different territorial locations. Ladies were invited to participate in the early nineties, and the tournament has grown from a group of eighteen that played in that first year to numbers that have reached as high as 108 participating in Barbados in 2006.

As the 'Brandon' aspect is gradually fading from the tournament the "Policy Committee" suggested that the tournament now be re-named "The Peter R. Phillips Veterans Tennis Championships". That comes into effect at the 30th anniversary of the tournament in Sicily in the Mediterranean in this year, 2010!

2009 Tournament Review

Our 2009 tournament was at Club Med in the beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands. There were 88 attendees. That's our second largest number after Barbados in 2006. We welcomed ten new members - Grant and Karen Farrell, John Harty and Eva Cromwell from Canada, Dianne Barry, Ed Smith and Adrian Clarke from the United States and Bill and Ainslie Thomson, and Grace Schroder from the Bahamas. Guest players attending were Samah Garringer and James Benneyworth from Canada and Tom Louie and Helen Bruno from the United States.


Noteworthy in the week was newcomer Adrian Clarke halting the dominance of Rob Benneyworth in the semi-finals of the Men's Singles. Both had ailments and Rob defaulted after losing the first set 6-2. Adrian won the final convincingly over Mas Kimball 6-1, 6-1. Peter Clarke carried Tyrone Mapp to 10-8 in the third set in the Over 60 Men's Singles. It was Tyrone's fifth win of that title - his only loss being to Alan Price in 2008.The two outstanding matches of the tournament were Mas Kimball's semi-final win over Peter Symmonds - 4-6, 6-0, 10-8(tb) and Athelstan Phillips' win over Ray Forde 6-2, 2-6, 16-14(tb).


The Peter Phillips Trophy, awarded to the male and female considered to have most contributed to the enjoyment and success of the tournament, went to Mas and Sue Kimball - Mas for his experience in the scheduling of the tournament play and Sue for her consistent work in mopping the courts following the many rainfalls that challenged the success of the tournament.


The traditional ten medallion awards went to:

1. Mas Kimball for introduction of computer determinations in our match scheduling, which proved successful and which has earned him a place on our Management Committee.

2. Errol Williams for his excellent work in computerizing a number of the Club's activities which has been both 'cost saving' and an improvement in efficiency and for his assistance in the tournament scheduling.

3. Adrian Clarke for his dominance of the Men's Singles (no one got more than two games from him in any set)  and the cool, effective style with which he achieved his victories.

4. Ruth Layne for her considerable work in the collection of the entry fees and the distribution of tennis shirts to attendees.

5 and 6. Jack Ramsey and Pierre Monnard for their help whenever, wherever and whatever situation arose that required a helping hand.

7. Rolly Grant for his tremendous help in organizing the transport of tennis balls and tennis shirts from Canada to the Turks and Caicos Islands for the tournament..

8 and 9. Bill and Ainslie Thomson for, as first timers, throwing their energy into helping, throughout the week, in a variety of situations.

10. Christine Brown who is not a member and lives in Canada, but took some tennis related fabric that I had bought for the Club and made a variety of very useful items that we have used as prizes.!

The Serving Accuracy Competition was won by a four person tie - Billy Mitchell, Grant Farrell, Sylvia Head and Marcia Smith. Marcia is the second person (and female) who is not a tournament player, but who has won a serving accuracy prize! Charlotte Seiger did so in Barbados in 2006.

Prizes were distributed by Dorothy Williams. At the prize-giving  an announcement was made by Peter Symmonds, one of the Management  Committee Members, that the Committee had voted to re-name the tournament "The Peter R. Phillips Veterans Tennis Championships", effective in 2010.

The Club's Management Committee welcomed the addition of  Mas Kimball to its team.

Special Mention

Patsy Russell

Patsy is the mother of three former prominent Jamaican tennis players. - Compton, Greg and Norman, and the aunt of Richard Russell. She was very helpful in the establishment of our Brandon Veterans Tennis and was the prime organizer of the second and fourth tournaments held in Rose Hall in Jamaica and in Castries in St. Lucia. From Jamaica, she settled in Florida and sadly, is now blind, but, she did come up to our 25th anniversary tournament held at Port St. Lucie in northern Florida in 2005!

Peter Isaacs

Peter was among the group that played in the first Brandon Veterans Tournament. He was a regular and tough competitor. In 1998 he won the Over 60 Singles at the Jack Tar Village in Montego Bay Jamaica.  Peter has a sporting record that should be in the Guinness Book of Records. He has represented the Bahamas in seven different sports - baseball, softball, cricket, rugby, soccer, darts and tennis! Try and beat that!!

Walter Comrie

Walter, born in April 1921, is our oldest member. He will be 89 years old when we are in Sicily! He is a Jamaican but settled in Florida in the USA some many years ago. We have kept in touch since and when he heard about our tournament he joined the Club. Walter last played in the Brandon Veterans Tournament in 2000 when it was held at the Half Moon Bay Tennis and Beach Club in Rose Hall on the outskirts of Montego Bay in Jamaica.

Charles Donaldson

Charles is the second oldest member of our Club., after Walter Comrie. Charles served in the US Military Forces from May 15th 1944 to February 17th 1946. He was with the Marines. Charles' service and the fact that he was still alive came to the attention of the Military Affairs Unit in 2008 and this resulted in his receiving five decorations and citations :

1. Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medal;  2.American Campaign Medal;  3. World War II Victory Medal;  4. Combat Action Ribbon;  5. Camden County Military Service Medal

Pretty impressive! Our  congratulations to you Charles on your service and your commendations! Beware, Obama might call on you for service in Afghanistan!

Christine Brown

Christine does not play  tennis and is not a member of our Club, but she made a very worthwhile contribution to the Club recently. Though I made acknowledged it by awarding her one of our customary annual ten medallions from the tournament, I would like to make a broader recognition here in our magazine.

I had bought a large beautiful piece of fabric, adorned with tennis racquet emblems. She happened to have seen it and volunteered to make a variety of  tennis prizes out of it. She did an excellent job - there were cushions, hand bags, purses and covered note books! They were used as prizes in the 2009 tournament and I think they were well received. Thanks Christine!
