Western Suburbs Weekly - - Inside & Outside Your Home -

WEM­B­LEY Pri­mary School has taken out the ti­tle of Most Out­stand­ing School at the 2016 WA Ten­nis In­dus­try Awards Night.

The school was recog­nised for its com­mit­ment to pro­vid­ing stu­dents with an op­por­tu­nity to play ten­nis at school as well as pro­vide links to their lo­cal club.

The school of­fers a be­fore-school ten­nis pro­gram in con­junc­tion with Floreat Ten­nis Club each term, with 235 stu­dents at­tend­ing each morn­ing.

The school was just one of the win­ners from the west­ern sub­urbs, with Cottes­loe Ten­nis Club tak­ing out the State League Cham­pion Men’s Team award and Peter O’Dea from Cottes­loe Ten­nis Club tak­ing home the HA Young Plumb­ing Ser­vice to Ten­nis award.

Ten­nis West pres­i­dent Wayne Firns said the awards evening shone the light on 15 win­ners, who had con­trib­uted to the sport.

“The WA Ten­nis In­dus­try Awards pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity to cel­e­brate ten­nis in WA and recog­nise the out­stand­ing achieve­ments of our state’s ju­nior and se­nior play­ers, of­fi­cials, coaches, vol­un­teers, ad­min­is­tra­tors and clubs,” he said.

“Ten­nis is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing fan­tas­tic growth in WA at the mo­ment and this event is a great op­por­tu­nity to take stock, re­flect on the achieve­ments of ev­ery­one and en­joy each other’s com­pany.”

Hale Hockey Club has ap­pointed Madonna Blyth its elite women’s coach.
