The championship tennis matches for the Buchanan and Montgomery Gups were played off on the Star oourts at Puaha on Saturday last. Miss Mods Columbus and Mr ,Geo. Wright represented the Wairewa Tennis Olub, and Miss Nora Fabey and Mr Cecil White represented the Star Club. The matches were played off in excellent weather, and, as usual, there was a large attendance to witness the contest. Miss Mona Columbus brought back the Montgomery Cup to the Wairewa Glob by defeating the last year's champion 10—8— 6 3. The game, especially in the first set, was a very exciting one, and there was not really very much to ohoose between the players. In the second set Miss Fahey lost a good deal of her form and dash, and Miss Columbus easily drew ahead.
The match beteen Mr White and Mr Wright was a good game from start to finish, Mr White again carrying off the Cap, his scores being 8 6—6— 4. The players kept well together in the first spell, but in the second set the champion won the first few games. The aexfc few, however, went to his opponent, who, however, lost the next two, thus losing the set. This is the fourth time in succession that Mr Cecil White has won the Buchanan Cup.
