We have organised with Tennis Seniors Victoria to have a Tournament this Sunday August 20th at 1pm - 4:30pm. This will mean there will only be a couple of courts at most available to members not playing in the tournament on Sunday afternoon. The Tournament is open to our Club members, with the event appropriate for experienced tournament and competition players. Members pay $10 for the afternoon's competitive tennis - probably at least the equivalent of 4 sets - Tennis Vic Senior members pay $15. There will be at least two sections of men's and women's doubles with players playing with different partners. Tennis Seniors Victoria run similar tournaments to this each month at different clubs in Victoria - Check their website. At the end of play afternoon tea will be served, and tea and coffee will be available during the afternoon.
Congratulations to our Pennant team (Grade 6 Section 4) for their win in the semi-final against Gracedale Park on Saturday 5th August. Our commisserations for a very close loss in the second final against Greensborough on Saturday 12th August.
