CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP WRAP
Another strong season of tennis has wrapped up with Brendan Clark featuring prominently on the podium. It was a coming of age for Brendan, who lofted the cup high in all three championship events taking out the doubles, mixed doubles and converted singles championship. Brendan teamed up with the consistent Caitie Willcox in the mixed doubles going in as favourites and not disappointing. Brendan then teamed up with father Colin and carried him all the way to the finals where again the Clark combo proved too strong. The singles was a changing of the guard with Brendan up against four time club champion, club coach and all round quality player in Simon Cockburn. Cockburn has had his measure in the past but it wasn’t to be. After a hard fought game Brendan proved to much for his own coach, taking out the Championship in straight sets.
The Womens Singles saw two consistent and fierce competitors in Beck O’Connell and Marion McRae square off on centre court on finals day. The two popular players slugged it out on a perfect afternoon with O’Connell’s cool head and power serve prevailing with a straight sets win. O’Connell was another regular at the podium after teaming up with proven doubles performer Catie Willcox to take out the Womens Doubles earlier in the year.
