Stop press! The big news this past winter season was that all 4 teams – sections 5, 7, 8 and 10 – played in grand finals.  In the wash up we had two teams as grand final winners and two teams as runners up. Our level 8 team inched ahead of Aireys Inlet to narrowly win their grand final by 7 games.  Aireys and Barwon Heads both won 3 sets and the thrilling tennis included two tie-breakers.  Congratulations to Maz Mcintosh, Sal Fahey, Sal Jackson, Lou Atkins, Sue Rawling and Merilyn Harris.

Level 10 also won their first grand final having been runners up several times before.  Vicky McKee, Amanda Searby, Dawn McInerney, Judy Burne and Tania White all celebrated their victory.P1000797At the end of the 2012 Summer competition two teams made it to the finals.  Grade 5 (pictured below) narrowly lost the preliminary finals to Torquay.  After 6 sets both teams were equal and so they had to play a final deciding set – which unfortunately we lost.  However, it was great tennis.  Congratulations to team members Marg Pock, Janet Agg, Fran Rowlands, Sonia Pittaway, Deb McNamara and Rhonda Collins. Congrats also to Grade 10 who made it to the semi-finals only to lose by one game.  Better luck next season  – Vicky McKee, Amanda Searby, Dawn McInerney, Tanya White and Judy Burne.
