Ten­nis ju­niors hit tar­gets

Albany Extra - - Extra Sport - David Kerr David Kerr is the ju­nior ten­nis co-or­di­na­tor of the Lower Great South­ern Ten­nis As­so­ci­a­tion

The Lower Great South­ern Ten­nis As­so­ci­a­tion went very well in last week’s D’Arcy Slater Cup.

On the fi­nal re­sults, our B-team of Ben Kirk­wood, Ge­orge Hodgkin­son, Levi Daw­son and Ben Ha­clin also fared well with a fourth-placed fin­ish.

With 15 teams in­volved this was an ex­cel­lent event for our 13-an­dun­der play­ers, who fin­ished first and fourth in the big field.

Den­mark’s teams event is only one week away, which is the first ju­nior event of the sea­son, and will be held on Sun­day, Novem­ber 19.

Play­ers can play A, B or C-grade and mix boys and girls in teams.

See your club no­tice­board for in­for­ma­tion or call Mark Jones on 0409 439 071 or email maaku­jones@ya­hoo.com.au.

Well done to Abbi Gib­son who rep­re­sented Switzer­land in the Ju­nior Hop­man Cup, played in Perth last week­end.

The teams of two event was a great chance to get some qual­ity match­play be­fore her 14s na­tional qual­i­fi­ca­tion cam­paign.

If suc­cess­ful, Abbi will gain main draw se­lec­tion in both 12s and 14s girls sin­gles at the De­cem­ber Show­down at Mel­bourne Park next month.

If any clubs would like items to be men­tioned in this reg­u­lar ar­ti­cle, email me at david@fnal­bany.com.au.

The suc­cess­ful Lower Great South­ern Ten­nis As­so­ci­a­tion team with the D’Arcy Slater Cup spoils.
