2013 Winners

Tennis Victoria would like to congratulate the winners of the 2013 Pennant Player of the Year Award. One player from each of the Men’s and Women’s competitions, Men’s and Women’s Open Doubles and Men’s Masters 50+ Doubles has won the award. The best performing Seniors team from across the grades of the Men’s Masters 50+ Doubles is awarded the Kevin Howard Award.

The very successful 2013 Pennant season saw the standard of play across all grades increase with the introduction of a defined number of sections in the higher grades and a capping of teams entered by clubs creating a greater diversity of clubs across the competition.

In recognition of this achievement, Tennis Victoria awards each winner with 2 ground passes to the 2014 Australian Open, as well as an invitation to the 2013 Asia-Pacific Tennis League – Vic Conference Final (venue and date still to be finalised), where, as VIP guests they will be presented with their award.

The 2013 winners and runners up, including the Kevin Howard Award, can be found here.

Congratulations to all players on an outstanding individual season!
