Narrogin Observer - - Sport - Michael Traill and Tate Bar­rett

Brook­ton’s Brad Bas­sett and Ash­ley Hobbs won this year’s High­bury Ten­nis Club Pre-Har­vest Ten­nis Tour­na­ment men’s A-grade ti­tle on Satur­day.

The pair won the ti­tle un­de­feated while Nar­ro­gin’s Dale Woodruff and Mark Gra­ham were run­nerup.

In the women’s A-grade, sis­ters Cara Borth­wick (Wick­epin) and Darelle Grin­sell (Perth) claimed the ti­tle, edg­ing out Pin­gelly’s Rhean­non Tur­ton and Wa­gin’s Jess Clifton.

Scott Ang­win (Dum­b­leyung) and Tate Bar­rrett (High­bury) won the men’s B-grade di­vi­sion as three pairs fin­ished on 5 wins 1 loss.

High­bury’s Tim Wiese and Craig Bor­gas were run­ner-up on a dou­ble count­back.

The B-grade women’s win­ners, from Wan­der­ing, were Dawn Dowsett and Jaqui Schorer, with Stef Green and Re­nae Bransby from Wick­epin run­ners-up.

Four­teen men and 13 women pairs com­peted in four di­vi­sions in the an­nual dou­bles tour­na­ment, which marked its eighth year.

Or­gan­iser Tate Bar­rett hailed the tour­na­ment a suc­cess.

“Although the first tour­na­ment of the sea­son, the tal­ent on show did not dis­ap­point with some ex­cel­lent ten­nis played through­out the day,” he said.

“There was some good, fun, closely fought games in what turned out to be great ten­nis weather de­spite the early morn­ing storms.”
