Play­ers lift for real com­pe­ti­tion

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE -

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to all of Caloun­dra’s Elite Ten­nis In­ter­na­tional’s or­ange ball play­ers on the term one com­pe­ti­tion.

Many of these play­ers were play­ing their first real scor­ing ten­nis matches and their court aware­ness, con­fi­dence in their scor­ing abil­ity and gen­eral hit­ting qual­ity im­proved enor­mously.

In the end, Is­abella Welsh was the out­stand­ing player of the term, lead­ing all the way. As far as we can re­mem­ber she fin­ished with the big­gest win­ning mar­gin of any past win­ner.

Is­abella fin­ished on 70 points, 16 points clear of Luke Dixon who fin­ished run­ner-up. If we went down an­other 16 points we would land at the 15th placed player, show­ing the mar­gin of Is­abella’s win.

Miki Ely fin­ished in third spot with 52 points and then the greatly im­proved Made­lyn Cairns on 52.

We have a new king of red ball ten­nis. Ryan White has won his first Fri­day night Pizza Ca­pers Red Ball com­pe­ti­tion. Ryan fin­ished with a to­tal of 240 points for the term, which equates to the amount of ac­tual ten­nis points won over the du­ra­tion of the comp.

Ashton Moore came in se­cond on 232 with some fan­tas­tic ten­nis all term. Piper Gregson was third on 219, with Tyler Moser fourth on 217.

This com­pe­ti­tion is a great in­tro­duc­tion to match play and is run so well by coach Jenny and her amaz­ing helper Eva.

Well done to all play­ers on a great sea­son, with spe­cial thanks to Kim and the team at Pizza Ca­pers for all their sup­port. All play­ers from the two comps can see the fi­nal leader board at elite ten­nis­in­ter­na­tional.com. To get in­volved phone 5491 8487.
