TENNIS
  • Night competiton – ten teams competed in the Zone Thursday night competition last term. No TPTC members made the final of the Division 2 comp, which was won by a Dongara based team. However, TPTC members Peter Koroibulu, Ross Sutherland and Brad Crear (along with Brett Wallace) managed to win the Division 1 title in a very closely fought final. Peter and Ross combined to win the last two sets of doubles (after being down in both) leading to a 1 game victory. Well played indeed!!!!!
  • Corporate tennis – Crothers Construction (with Michelle Ford leading the way) again wrapped up the Term 4 Corporate Tennis title. This is the third Corporate Tennis title in a row it has won. In a very closely fought competition Crothers just got over the line from Geraldton Physiotherapy and the Police team (Hot Fuzz). A new competition is due to start on the 13th of February. If you are interested in putting a team in please contact Jarron asap. This is a great introduction to competitive/social tennis.
  • Night competitions this term – we are looking at a Monday night doubles comp and/or a Wednesday night singles comp (based on the Fast 4 format) this term. Information on those competitions will come out shortly so get your name in asap to the organisers.


WEBSITE

Ben Crossthwaite has been very busy redoing the clubs website. The Web address has changed (www.tarcoolaparktennisclub.org) and it has been updated with great photos and other information. Ben and Rob Grima have done a mountain of work to get this website up and running – I’m sure you will appreciate the results. You can see the Calendar on there so there is no reason to miss out on anything happening at the club.


JOHN FISHER DAY

A brilliant day for tennis greeted the 13 pairs competing in the John Fisher Day mixed doubles competition. The format of grading and pairing the players meant there were some closely matched teams on the day. This led to some great competitive tennis in a social atmosphere. A great day concluded with Lesley O’Brien and Colin Mastrangelo beating Sally Mackenzie and Brian Thomas in the final.


HEINEKEN DAY (SPONSORED BY LION Co) This event is to be held on the 14th February and will be a mens and ladies doubles day. So get your partner organized – as usual TPTC members are encouraged to find a partner from another club where possible. Please get your name in by the 13th of February (Rob 0427 382 490). GRASSCOURTS These were verticut in early December but already have great grass coverage (it seemed to grow overnight). They will be ready to go for the Heineken Day next month.
