The 2014/2015 Tennis Geelong Summer Season came to a close on Saturday 21st March. There were two senior teams and two junior teams in grand finals and we finished with a 50% success rate.

In the seniors, Sections 6 encountered the ‘the youngsters’ from Waurn Ponds for the 4th time this year but their experience could not stop the youth claiming the ultimate prize. Congratulations to the runner-up team: Tracey Lazarus, Rhonda Sutas, Kerry May, Sally Edwards, and Leanne Winsall, together with

Andrew McKinnon, Conor McKinnon, Robert Begolo, Brett Armstrong and Andrew Griffin.

Section 11 brought home the silver with a comfortable win over Bellbrae. The weather was perfect for tennis, and apart from the usual nerves the team played some very consistent tennis. It was a sweet victory after the team lost by a mere 2 games in 2014. Congratulations to Mimi Armstrong, Melissa Dallinger, Margie McLeod, Paul O’Brien and Dave Brauer.

In the Junior ranks, Ocean Grove were too strong on the day for our Barwon Heads section 4 team, going down by 9 games. Liam Carroll got them off to a strong start by winning his singles 6-0, but some close sets followed as well as two losses in the doubles. Great effort though from our boys and congratulations on runner-up position: Liam Carroll, Ari Millem, Sean Williamson, Nathan Cameron and Emmett Hudson.

Our mixed junior team section 24 played very well to win their first flag against Point Lonsdale. Isaac Ingham had the biggest challenge of the day, and was unlucky to lose his singles after some amazing rallies 4-6. The overall result was 5 sets to 1. Congratulations to Mollie Condon, Charlie Barlow, Maeve O’Brien, Maddie Barlow, Isaac Ingham and Tias Halse.
