Kensington Wildcats ATL New Nov 20-22nd.

The Tennis SA “Festival of Tennis” weekend featuring The Asia-Pacific Tennis League launch at Tea Tree Gully Tennis Club, Friday evening, Kensington Gardens Lawn Tennis Club Saturday arfternoon and Memorial Drive on Sunday.

As the “roving” reporter of all 3 events, Our Club hosted Round 2 of the ATL and celebrated in style!

Tea Tree Gully Tennis Club hosted the first round Friday evening with all teams in the Southern Conference eager to start the games!  TTG TC were proud to announce their new viewing platform adjacent to the club house. The BBQ guys were great, as they had to move the BBQ around from the “TT GULLY” winds that evening! The lights and action came on and there was some difficulties for teams to adjust to the sunset/dark conditions. All the players were excited to get into the matches and the challenge was on!

The Tennis SA sponsored Woolworths Ball Kids performed to precision and a great credit to these young kids who will go on to the WTC Challenge and even the Aus Open!
