2014 Inter-Regional Championships Wrap-Up

Mornington Peninsula sent a full team of 30 players to the 2014 Victorian Inter-Regional Championships in Creswick to complete against other country regions from across Victoria.

All of our team members were competitive against very strong and seasoned players from around country Victoria. I would like to make special mention of the following players and pairs for their outstanding efforts in reaching finals and semi finals of events:

Emma Hall – Runner Up Ladies Open Singles

Rod Wilson – Runner Up Mens Senior Singles

Baily Harris/Sara Trower – Runner Up 16/U Mixed Doubles

Sara Trower/Summer Jones – Runner Up 16/U Girls Doubles

Julie Van Lieshout/Bronwyn Barber – Runner Up Ladies Senior Doubles

Baily Harris – Semi Finalist 16/U Boys Singles

Sara Trower – Semi Finalist 16/U Girls Singles

Tom Floyd/Laura Farrugia – Semi Finalist 14/U Mixed Doubles

Baily Harris/Nathan Johnson – Semi Finalist 16/U Boys Doubles

Jackson Shadbolt/Ned Jordan – Semi Finalist 18/U Boys Doubles

Jackson Shadbolt/Courtney Skene – Semi Finalist 18/U Mixed Doubles

Lillie Jarrett/Emily Barnard – Semi Finalist 22/U Ladies Doubles

I was particularly proud of not only our team’s results, but the manner in which team members conducted themselves both on and off the court. It was also great to see team members who may have finished events stay around and support team members still competing.  From my chats with players and supporters during the Championships, it appears that everyone had a great time and look forward to next year’s event.

I am still awaiting the release of the final results, but it appears that we finished either 4th or 5th overall (compared with 8th last year) and finished 2nd behind Central Highlands as the Most Improved region. Once final results are issued I will update this page.

Finally – Well Done team and thanks for your support!!!
