Sun Shines as Comp Gets off to Good Start

Article excerpt

THE first round of the Saturday morning junior tennis competition for the year was played last week.

Thank heavens the weather was kind as there was almost double the number of players from last season, so it was important for the comp to get off to a good start.

In division one both games had very clear-cut winners.

James Brown and Christie Haisman won their match 31 games to 9 without losing a set. James won his singles 8-0 and 6-2 and combined with Christie for an 8-0 doubles win. This was a great start to his year.

Conlan Brehaut and Jake Howe were just as convincing in the other match. Conlan was a standout, winning all three sets. He won his singles 8-0 and 6-2 and combined with Jake for a 6-2 doubles win. They won 28-12.

The other match was a nail-biter.

Both sets were 4-all, which set the scene for the morning. The next two sets saw Domenic win a set 5-3 for his team and then Isaac won his singles for the other team by same score. All square with doubles to go. At the end of the day the teams could not be split and a 20-all result was a fair finish.

Both matches in division four were also very well contested.

Lilly Pade got her team off to a handy lead with a 7-1 singles win. …
