Emery went undefeated in singles play throughout the tournament, winning the final 6-3 over top seed Michael Bruen. Emery was pleased with his form throughout the event and honoured to win the event.

The weekend featured over 80 players competing across 12 events including open, junior and senior categories.
In the Men’s Resident’s Doubles Tom Laudenbach and Sean Thomas defeated Tim Harris and Neville Rodwell.
Jason Duff took out the A Grade Men’s singles, while Sue Willis (35 & 50+) and Tony Winston (50+) also claimed singles victories in their respective divisions.
In the junior events, Chevonne Van Rensburg (14/u & 16/u) Kiran Myutel-Mansur (14/u), Alisha Kumar (10/u & 12/u), and Alejandro Fisher (10/u) won singles titles in their age group.
