2013 Junior/Senior Tournament

2013 Bendigo Bank round robin tournament:  Sunday March 3 2013 was the annual Round Robin fun day open to all members and locals.  The last time the tournament was held was in 1984 so we dusted off shields, bought new trophies and loved the revitalised energy in the Club.  The event was also the first opportunity to present a special award in memory of Annette Cullen, a dedicated and valued Club member for many years. The Annette Cullen Memorial Trophy is now presented each year to the junior player who demonstrates excellent sportsmanship and shows great effort and dedication in their tennis.  In 2013 the award went to Thomas Hartney.  The Club was honoured to have Peter Cullen present the award.
