2018 Club Tournament

Thirty five players participated in one or more of the nine events.  This year the men who usually participate decided not to choose their own partners but left it to the Tournament Committee to pair players for a round robin event.  Positive feedback indicates that the men enjoyed the number of competitive matches.

Junior Tournament 2018

Once again the club ran the three day South Perth Junior Open in January.  Unseasonal rain resulted in 1 & ½ days loss of playing time making necessary the change to Fast4 format.

Thanks to the volunteers on the tournament committee, in the kitchen, erecting shades, and supervising the Under 10 matches.  Their assistance greatly helped me and their efforts raised approximately $3000 for the club.
