Te Awamutu Courier - - News -

Te Awa­mutu’s Blue team has come out con­vinc­ing win­ners of this year’s Waikato Ju­nior In­ter­club Ten­nis C grade com­pe­ti­tion.

Te Awa­mutu fin­ished un­beaten, down­ing Beerescourt Belles 6-0, Te Awa­mutu Green 4-2, Lug­ton Park 5-1, Tat­u­anui 6-2 and Beerescourt Back­spins 6-0.

All the team were firstyear com­peti­tors at this level, hav­ing pre­vi­ously played in ei­ther the Melville Cup or Rac­que­teers com­pe­ti­tions run by the Te Awa­mutu Ten­nis Sub As­so­ci­a­tion.

Te Awa­mutu club cap­tain War­ren Beck said he was very proud of the play­ers fronting up each week and bat­tling hard to get the wins.

Team man­ager Trena Parker said she was proud that ev­ery mem­ber of the six-strong team eas­ily made the tran­si­tion up to the Waikato ju­nior C grade. The old­est mem­ber of the team, Ol­lie Storey (14) said the com­pe­ti­tion had been a good ex­pe­ri­ence to start play­ing com­pet­i­tively.

The com­peti­tors played the best of three sets for both sin­gles and dou­bles.
