TEN­NIS play­ers from across the South West con­verged on Boyup Brook over the Labour Day long week­end for the town’s an­nual ten­nis tour­na­ment.

Tour­na­ment di­rec­tor Jodi Nield said 92 play­ers from 17 clubs com­peted in the event on March 3 and 4.

Ac­cord­ing to Nield, many re­turn to the tour­na­ment year af­ter year for the great fam­ily at­mos­phere, qual­ity ten­nis coun­try hos­pi­tal­ity.

“There is such a re­laxed feel about our tour­na­ment – it runs so smoothly and every­one has a great time on and off the court,” she said.

A to­tal of 193 sin­gles, dou­bles and mixed dou­bles matches were played with com­peti­tors rang­ing from ju­niors through to su­per vet­er­ans.

Bun­bury’s Sam Galati won the men’s cham­pi­onship sin­gles ti­tle for the sec­ond time.

Bridgetown mother and daugh­ter Natalie and Brooke Clynch con­tested the women’s sin­gles fi­nal with Brooke win­ning the day.

The tour­na­ment’s con­tin­u­ing suc­cess is due to the enor­mous con­tri­bu­tion of a team of ded­i­catand ed vol­un­teers and the sup­port of lo­cal busi­ness spon­sors, Nield said.
